From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lou Stein (April 22, 1922 – December 11, 2002) was an American jazz pianist.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Stein joined Ray McKinley's band in 1942.[1] He played with Glenn Miller when the latter was stateside during World War II.

After the war he worked with Charlie Ventura (1946–47)[1] and became a session musician. He performed with the Lawson-Haggart Band, Benny Goodman, Sarah Vaughan, the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, Louie Bellson, Red Allen, Coleman Hawkins, and Lester Young, and recorded as a bandleader. In 1957 he had a U.S. Top 40 hit with "Almost Paradise", which peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100. His cover version of "Got a Match" made the Cashbox Top 60 in 1958. He played with Joe Venuti from 1969 to 1972.[1]
