Thanks Brownie!

When I met her (when she was in town with the Quincy Jones Orchestra) her name was pronounced as in 'bone'.

How do you pronounce David van Kriedt's last name? (Member of the late-1940s Brubeck octet.)

If it's a name of dutch origin, I would say "creet", but of course the usual pronunciation in the US could be very different.

I know the "Terje" part, but what about the "Rypdal" part?

(sorry, too lazy to search all 11 pages of this thread to see if it's aforementioned.)

Harry Miller?

I'm serious... would it be pronounced like an 'ummerican or in a Dutch/ZA fashion?

It's pronounced Harry Miller. An Afrikaner would say Harry Miller with an accent. He'd also say Clifford Thornton with an accent.

Lol Coxhill

(First and last. I'd assume the first as in "Jelly Lol Morton", but I may be wrong)

I've always heard his first name to rhyme with doll, not roll. I can't imagine any other pronunciation than cocks hill, except maybe cocksle.

Patti Bown?

Does it sound like "bone" or like "brown" (without the "r")?

I've always said "bone" but have never been sure.

I think either bone or maybe Bowen, which it may be a corruption of.

Eje Thelin

Not sure how to represent this orthographically, but I think it's Eaya (or long A sound for first syllable, short A sound for second) Tay-leen. I think Don Cherry may announce his name on Eternal Rhythm.

Thanks for the Miller clarification. Yes, I am a bonehead sometimes!

I assumed the way you're saying re: Thelin is pretty much correct, though Tay-lihn rather than Tay-leen. At least that's how my Russian friend who's spent time in Sweden says it.

Dakota Staton's last name?

Rhymes with Payton.

Always wondered about that. Thanks.

Reading this because I always wanted to know how to pronounce the name of the owner of Hi Records - Joe Cuoghi. Is it Kwoffee? Kwoguy? Kwoggy?

Ah, I wondered where the name came from. Thanks Bill.

Can't always tell with Italian, anyway. In my youth I had an Italian mate called Pier-Giorgio Kubanski.

Well, I did say "in Italy". Turns out the American Joe Cuoghi wanted his name to rhyme with boogie:
