One day he (jazz critic Charles Delauney) was rounded up by the Gestapo. While waiting in his cell to be interrogated, Charles was visited by a Gestapo official. The guy said to him, “You had the second trombonist wrong in the Lucky Millinder band in your discography.” The Nazi was a closet jazz fan and let him go. Jazz had kept Charles alive.

Un jour, il (le critique de jazz Charles Delauney) est arrêté par la Gestapo. En attendant dans sa prison avant d’être interrogé, il reçoit la visite d’un membre de la Gestapo. Le gars lui dit :” Tu t’es trompé sur le second tromboniste dans le groupe de Lucky Millinder dans ta discographie.” Le Nazi était un fan de jazz en cachette et il l’a libéré. Le jazz lui a sauvé la vie.
