    Mildred Bailey - All Of Me 1931
    Acc.Paul Whiteman and Orchestra
    Chicago, Illinois Victor
    22879-B

    Vaudeville star Belle Baker introduced the public to All of Me over the radio in 1931. Detroit songwriters,
    Seymour Simons and Gerald Marks, offered Baker the song, and she sang it onstage at the Motor City's famous Fisher Theatre.
    As the story goes, the singer had just lost her husband, and, struck by the personal sense of loss conveyed in the lyrics, broke down weeping during a performance.
    The national press picked up the story and before long the song was a hit.

    December 1, 1931, recording of All of Me by Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra, with vocalist Mildred Bailey, was the song's first major hit.
    It entered the pop charts in January of 1932 and rose to the number one position where it held for three weeks.

    I have been wanting some warm background music to play quietly when guests are over. The front parlor is full of vintage furnishings, and some vintage music remixed with more echo and bass to help it melt into the atmosphere seemed appropriate. This is just one mix by the great Mildred Bailey.

  • Please Be Kind - Mildred Bailey

    2:37

    Recorded in New York, 1938. Born Mildred Rinker on Feb. 27, 1903, the late Mildred Bailey was considered the greatest white jazz singer before the arrival of Anita O'Day. The songstress was much more than that, however. Bailey's vocals were heavily influenced by the blues of singer-actress Ethel Waters and Blues Empress Bessie Smith. She got her audition break in 1929 as a returned favor from brother Al Rinker and his friend, Bing Crosby, and made her recording debut on October 5 of the same year.

    Though a large woman, Mildred possessed a small, bell-clear voice with a brightness surpassed only by young Dinah Washington. Here we find her in pristine, sultry and pleading form on the Sammy Cahn and Saul Chaplin Composition, Please Be Kind.

    Summertime is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin by ASCAP.
    The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as without doubt ... one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote ... Gershwin's highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century. Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim has characterized Heyward's lyrics for Summertime and My Man's Gone Now as the best lyrics in the musical theater. The song is recognized as one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers.

  • Mildred Bailey - Fools Rush In

    3:21

    Recorded between 1940-42

    Fine singer known for her small, high-pitched voice, Mildred Bailey was one of the most popular female vocalists of the 1930s. She began her career in Los Angeles during the 1920s singing on radio and in nightclubs. With the help of her brother, Rhythm Boy Al Rinker, she was hired by Paul Whiteman in 1929, becoming the first featured female vocalist with a major national dance band. Her sweet and flexible voice, equally capable of singing both jazz and ballads, made her Whiteman's star attraction after Bing Crosby left for Hollywood in 1930.

    In the early 1930s Bailey married Whiteman xylophonist Red Norvo. They eventually left the King of Jazz and formed their own band in 1936. Billed as ''Mr. and Mrs. Swing,'' the couple was featured on CBS radio and made many recordings together. Their group broke up in 1939, and they eventually divorced,* though they continued to work together on and off in the early 1940s. Bailey also recorded independently from time to time during their partnership.

    Despite all of her success, superstardom eluded Bailey. She blamed her plumpness, but others claimed it was her temper and sharp tongue as well as the bitterness she carried with her towards better-looking female vocalists whom she thought less talented. She claimed her obesity was glandular, but many of her friends felt it had more to do with her great love of eating.

    Bailey continued recording until the mid-1940s, when health problems forced her to retire. Plagued by a combination of diabetes, heart trouble and hardening of the arteries, she was near death and broke until she was rescued by composer Jimmy Van Heusen, who arranged to split her medical bills with Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. She recovered well-enough to begin performing again, but her health problems eventually took their toll, and she died, penniless, on December 12, 1951, at age 44.

    Vintage Radio Slideshow.
    Mildred Bailey (February 27, 1907 -- December 12, 1951) was a popular and influential American jazz singer during the 1930s, known as The Rockin' Chair Lady and Mrs. Swing. Her number one hits were Please Be Kind, Darn That Dream, Rockin' Chair and Says My Heart.
    In the mid 1930s, she recorded with her third husband Red Norvo. A dynamic couple, they earned the nicknames Mr. and Mrs. Swing. During this period (1936--1939) Norvo recorded for Brunswick (with Bailey as primary vocalist) and Bailey recorded her own set of recordings for Vocalion, often with Norvo's band. Some of her recordings instead featured members of Count Basie's band. Despite her divorce from Norvo, she and Red would continue to record together until 1945. Suffering from diabetes and depression (during her adult life Bailey was overweight), she only made a few recordings following World War II. Mildred Bailey died December 12, 1951, in Poughkeepsie, New York, of heart failure, aged 44, chiefly due to her diabetes. Her ashes were scattered. Red Norvo outlived Bailey by nearly half a century, dying in April 1999, a week after his 91st birthday.
    I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You is a 1932 song composed by Victor Young, with lyrics written by Ned Washington and Bing Crosby, recorded on October 14, 1932 by Bing Crosby in New York.
    In 1939, Mildred Bailey fronted a six-side, mostly blues session as Mildred Bailey and her Oxford Greys for Vocalion, which featured a small mixed-race combo of Mary Lou Williams (piano), Floyd Smith (electric guitar), John Williams (bass) and Eddie Dougherty (drums).

    Mildred Bailey - They Can't Take That Away From Me (1940)

    They Can't Take That Away From Me is a 1937 song written by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin and introduced by Fred Astaire in the 1937 film Shall We Dance.

    Personnel includes: Mildred Bailey (vocals); Alec Wilder, Eddie Sauter (arranger); Russell Procope (alto saxophone); Ben Webster (tenor saxophone); Roy Eldridge (trumpet); Buster Bailey (clarinet); Mitch Miller (oboe, English horn); John Kirby (bass). January 25, 1940

    This is one of several sessions that took place under the direction of composer and arranger Alec Wilder, using 'chamber' instrumentalists
    like that master of the oboe and Cor anglais, Mitch Miller.
    This kind of production worked best when Bailey's voice was able to wrap itself around truly wonderful lyrics and melodies like All the Things You Are, Easy to Love and They Can't Take That Away from Me.

    Just got a request for this one, which was not yet available on YouTube. Enjoy marvelous Mildred ... I know we sure do! With Benny Goodman and His Orchestra (Columbia 35313).

  • MILDRED BAILEY - Evelina

    2:36

    Fabulous orchestration! Interesting that 10 years earlier Mildred recorded EMALINE, a completely different song.

    On the CD I used for this post, the title is incorrectly shown as Evaline, and that is why the video image has it that way (there is no way to edit it now).

    On the original hit records (Bing Crosby, Frankie Carle) and all the listings in Billboard, as well as the Broadway on Record guide, it is shown only as EVELINA.
