Johnny Otis, Rhythm and Blues Musician, Dies at 90

Fri, Jan 20, 2012
Johnny Otis, the musician, bandleader, songwriter, impresario, disc jockey and talent scout often called “the godfather of rhythm and blues,” died on Tuesday at his home in Altadena, Calif. He was 90. His death was confirmed by his manager, Terry Gould. Leading a band in the late 1940s that combined the high musical standards of big-band jazz with the raw urgency of gospel music and the blues, Mr. Otis played a key role in creating a new sound for a new audience of young urban blacks, a sound that within a few years would form the foundation of rock ’n’ roll.

Al Boeke dies at 88; 'father' of Northern California's Sea Ranch - Los Angeles Times

Sat, Nov 26, 2011
He wanted to have it be a reflection of the natural ecology." Boeke, who was born in Denver on Nov. 20, 1922, grew up in Altadena and earned a degree in architecture from USC in 1948. Early in his career he worked for Richard Neutra, the Los Angeles Modernist architect. He brought his progressive approach to Castle and Cooke, which hired him in 1959. He persuaded its top executives that Sea Ranch should not be densely built but offer instead a small number of weekend homes that would keep the population low. "Minimal disruption" of the natural environment was a guiding principle, so houses had muted colors that blended with their surroundings, power lines were buried underground and roofs were slanted to cope with the fierce North Coast winds. Houses would be allowed along the hedgerows and in the meadows but not in the areas directly fronting the coast. "The dominant idea was making that whole coastal experience available to all the people who live here, not just to a front row of houses. That is not conventional development wisdom," said Lyndon, a retired UC Berkeley architecture professor and member of the original design team, who lives at Sea Ranch. Boeke conceived Sea Ranch the same year that "Silent Spring," Rachel Carson's groundbreaking expose of pesticides that launched the modern environmental movement, was published. Ironically, the movement eventually turned against Sea Ranch, which critics portrayed as an outrageous encroachment on public access to a large swath of the state's majestic coast. Battles to preserve the coast led to the creation of the California Coastal Commission in 1972, which succeeded in blocking construction at Sea Ranch for 10 years. By the time the moratorium was lifted, expenses had risen so sharply that only the very wealthy could afford to build there, and they built large, luxurious homes that violated the original Sea Ranch philosophy. Sea Ranch was beyond the reach of the "just folks" Boeke had intended it for. It was a bitter turn for Boeke, who told Smith, "This isn't any longer the Sea Ranch, as far as I'm concerned, and that's a pretty rough statement." However, Smith noted that of the planned communities Boeke helped build, Sea Ranch remained his favorite. In addition to his wife, Boeke is survived by two sons from a previous marriage, a brother, a sister and grandchildren. elaine.woo@latimes.com ...
