Oct. 23, I will participate in the meeting of “Osaka jazz club(大阪ジャズ同好会)” at “Jazz coffee Dear Lord(JAZZ喫茶 DEAR LORD)“.
I must introduce my favorite vocalist to members.
Recently I heard an interesting radio broadcast about Dick Haymes.Go here
So I have decided to introduce Dick Haymes.
Dick Haymes was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1918.
At the age of 19, he moved to New York City where he worked as a vocalist in a number of big bands.
Dick Haymes was a star crooner with the big bands during the swing era of the 1940s.
Unfortunately in those days there was Frank Sinatra on this era.
As a matter of course he was Sinatra’s replacement singer in the big bands of both Harry James and Tommy Dorsey.
The story digressed from the main subject.
I had been posted Sinatra’s episode once when he left Harry James Orchestra.Go here
In any case I think Dick Haymes should be evaluated more.
This is he sings “All or nothing at all”.
