    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.

  • 1930s music - The best of Mildred Bailey

    2:05

    One of the most famous female vocalists of the 1930's music in United States, Mildred Bailey is also probably one of the greatest jazz & blues female singers of all the popular music history ; here's the most complete compilation of her best songs : 40 tracks in a 2 hours non-stop mix, songs from the year 1930 to year 1940 (she made a first recording in 1927, not on the mix because her career really started in year 1930, with I Like To Do Things For You, her first hit) ; she made others recordings after 1940, but theses late recordings are not on the compilation : the essential of her best songs is between the year 1930 until the year 1940 ; she was called Mrs Swing, and I guess we can say she was the queen of popular jazz music of the 1930's decade . Check also the new compilations of Helen Forrest and the special tribute to Bea Wain (who just died a few months ago in 2017, exactly at the age of 100 years...), if you like 1930's female singers (ill rec Vintage music collection's playlist) .

    Born Mildred Rinker in Tekoa, Washington, her mother, Josephine, was an enrolled member of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe and a devout Roman Catholic. Her father, Charles, played fiddle and called square dances. Her mother played piano every evening after supper and taught Mildred to play and sing. Her brothers were the vocalist and composer Al Rinker, and the lyricist Charles Rinker.
    Her first two records were as uncredited vocalist for an Eddie Lang Orchestra session in 1929 (What Kind O' Man Is You?, an obscure Hoagy Carmichael song that was only issued in the UK) and a 1930 recording of I Like To Do Things For You for Frankie Trumbauer. She was Whiteman's popular female vocalist through 1932 (recording in a smooth crooning style), when she left the band due to salary disagreements. She then recorded a series of records for Brunswick in 1933 (accompanied by The Dorsey Brothers), as well an all-star session with Benny Goodman's studio band in 1934 that featured Coleman Hawkins.
    Mildred Bailey died December 12, 1951, in Poughkeepsie, New York, of heart failure, aged 44, chiefly due to her diabetes. Her ashes were scattered.

  • 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.

    3:28

    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.

    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 & Paul Whiteman's Orchestra -- All Of Me, Victor 1931

    NOTE: Mildred BAILEY (nee Rinker) b. 1907 in Tekoa, Washington -- d. 1951 in Poughkeepsie, New York - American jazz singer during the 1930s, known as The Rockin' Chair Lady and Mrs. Swing. Her number one hits were Please Be Kind, Rockin' Chair and Says My Heart. Her mother, Josephine, was half Coeur d'Alene Indian and her father, Charles, played fiddle and called square dances. Her mother played piano every evening after supper and taught Mildred to play and sing. Her brothers were the lyricist Charles Rinker and the vocalist and composer Al Rinker (the later, was one of The Rhythm Boys, the male trio that accompanied Paul Whiteman's Orchestra in the 1920/30s). At the age of seventeen, Bailey moved to Seattle and worked as a sheet music demonstrator at Woolworth's. She married and divorced Ted Bailey, keeping his last name because she thought it sounded more American than Rinker. With the help of her second husband, Benny Stafford, she became an established blues and jazz singer on the West Coast. In 1929-33 she sang with Paul Whiteman's band, her first two records were as uncredited vocalist for an Eddie Lang Orchestra session in 1929 (What Kind O' Man Is You?, an obscure Hoagy Carmichael song that was only issued in the UK) and a 1930 recording of I Like To Do Things For You for Frankie Trumbauer (This rare recording is available in You Tube ).

    2:57

    Darn That Dream (DeLange-Van Heusen) by Benny Goodman & his Orchestra, vocal by Mildred Bailey

    “Darn That Dream” originated in the short-lived (13 performances) stage musical “Swingin’ The Dream,” which starred Louis Armstrong as “Bottom” in a modern-day adaptation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Musical Supervisor for the play was none other than Benny Goodman, who performed in the production with his sextet and also recorded this top-selling version of the song.

    3:18

    Mildred Bailey (1907 – 1951) ought to be a towering figure in the history of vocal jazz but remains largely unknown today outside fans of the music. To a degree, she is the missing link between Armstrong and Crosby. She pioneered the sense of intimacy which the new microphones allowed and which Crosby perfected. At the same time, and along with her contemporary Billie Holiday (who she resembles somewhat in timbre and phrasing), she showed that applying jazz techniques to the interpretation of popular song didn’t preclude bringing forth the full emotional import of lyrics.

    Clooney, Crosby, Sinatra and Bennett revered Bailey and Frank’s pianist Bill Miller said of her that “she knew how to ad lib, I mean she never quite sang anything the same way more than once. Maybe she wasn’t quite a jazz singer, but I wouldn’t know how else to describe her.”

    Here she is in late 1936 with a song by Vincent Youmans, Billy Rose and Edward Eliscu that was already well on its way to becoming a standard. The band alone takes the breath away including, as I does, Artie Shaw, Ben Webster, Teddy Wilson and Dave Barbour. In what amounts to an exemplar of jazz singing, Bailey sings the melody fairly straight on the first chorus but both anticipates and delays rhythms in ways that, as well as being musically delightful, enhance the meaning of the lyrics making them both conversational and intimate. After Webster and Ziggy Elman make their mark in just 8 bars each, she comes back at the bridge and charmingly recreates the melody.

    In 1929, Mildred Bailey joined the Paul Whiteman Orchestra at $75 a week. A year later, after the increasingly popular Bing Crosby left the band to pursue a movie career, she demanded $1250 a week -- and Whiteman gave it to her. According to Whiteman violinist Matty Malneck, she deserved it. Although the beginning years of the Great Depression had cut bookings drastically for most orchestras, Mildred's singing on the Whiteman's band radio broadcasts brought so much mail that Whiteman was able to use the publicity to keep his band on top despite the loss of Crosby. One of Mildred's most requested songs during this period was Hoagy Carmichael's Ol' Rockin' Chair --and soon she was soon dubbed The Rockin' Chair Lady, a nickname she continued to to exploit when she and husband, Red Norvo left Whiteman in 1934 to go on their own.
