Biography
Min Leibrook is best-known for having been Adrian Rollini's fill-in for recording sessions made in the late 1920's. A fine all-round musician, Leibrook actually started out on cornet before switching to the bass instruments. He played with the Ten Foot Band in Chicago, a later version of the Wolverines and with Arnold Johnson. After arriving in New York, Leibrook worked with Paul Whiteman's Orchestra during 1927-31, appearing on many recordings; he also was on some of the sessions by Frankie Trumbauer that featured Bix Beiderbecke. Although his glory days were largely over after leaving Whiteman, Leibrook was with Lennie Hayton's Orchestra in the mid-1930's, worked with the Three T's in 1936 (which featured Frankie Trumbauer and Jack and Charlie Teagarden) and was with Eddie Duchin on a couple occasions. Min Leibrook, who never led his own record date, eventually moved to Los Angeles where he played bass as a studio musician during his last years. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
