It's been awhile since I did a music break, but since I'm so busy, I thought it was time for another one.
For those of you that are new to my blog, I was doing a weekly series on music artists from before 1965 and mostly focusing on the 20s, 30s and 40s.
I think from now on that I'll just keep it to once a month or when I'm too busy to do a regular post.
Have you heard of her?
If you've listened to Benny Goodman, you've probably heard her voice, because she sang with the band from 1937 until the end of 1939.
She also played with a number of other bands and appeared in many films and radio programs.
You can read more about her life 'here'.
Her most famous song is "And the Angels Sing" from 1938 with the Benny Goodman Orchestra.
It was written by Johnny Mercer and Ziggy Elman.
And here she is singing "A Little Jive Is Good For You" with Ben Pollack and His Orchestra.
Written by Ralph Yaw and Mel Waters.
Now back to painting ;)
