  • ILL NEVER SMILE AGAIN ~ Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra

    3:12

    I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN ~ Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra ~ Frank Sinatra w/ The Pied Pipers (1940) Victor Records #26628

    Ruth Lowe, one time pianist with Ina Ray Huttons all-girl orchestra, was inspired to write I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN following the death of her husband, Harold Cohen, after only a few months of marriage.

    This recording was made in New York on May 23, 1940. The Pied Pipers consisted of Jo Stafford, John Huddleston, Clark Yocum, & Chuck Lowry. Trumpeter, Bunny Berigan, and drummer, Buddy Rich, were both apart of the Dorsey Orchestra at the time this recording was made.
    Glenn Miller, while on the Bluebird label, was the first to record, I'll Never Smile Again, but not much became of the recording, which was surprising, since anything Miller touched, normally became an instant success at that time. I, happily, found a vg+ 78 rpm copy of the Miller Bluebird recording of I'll Never Smile Again, sitting in a stack of worn out Bennett, Laine, & Peggy Lee records. I paid 25 cents for it, which was the same price I had paid for the Tommy Dorsey version of the same song, a few weeks earlier, at the same second hand store. Though the Dorsey version does have a slight edge on Miller's, I wouldn't part with either record for anything. I'll Never Smile Again, really is, a great song.

  • Opus One - 1943 Stereo - Tommy Dorsey

    3:08

    Put on your headphones and listen to this amazing stereo track that Tommy Dorsey recorded in 1943 for the film Broadway Rhythm. Starting in the late 30s, most film musicals were recorded in multi-channel sound but mixed down to mono for the film's release. Some of these original multi-track recordings survive and can be remixed to true stereo, as was done here.

    The number was cut, so this clip uses footage from other performances. The last half is mostly the Dorsey band actually playing Opus One.

    Special thanks to YouTuber ‘Swingy Little Rhythm’ for this fine 78 transfer of the original (reverb-free) track. The extended Sy Oliver arrangement (issued on a 12-inch disc) was Dorsey’s first commercial release to feature a solo-billed Jo Stafford vocal. Composed in 1930, “For You” achieved initial popularity with a 1933 recording by the Casa Loma orchestra:

  • 1943 HITS ARCHIVE: In The Blue Of Evening - Tommy Dorsey

    2:55

    In The Blue Of Evening (Adair-D’Artega) by Tommy Dorsey & his Orchestra, vocal by Frank Sinatra

    One of the more well-received of the Tommy Dorsey-Frank Sinatra recordings was this lushly-arranged ballad that spent three weeks in Billboard’s #1 spot.

    THE 1943 HITS ARCHIVE - a collection of commercial recordings and songs that proved popular during the calendar year 1943 via sales, sheet music, juke box play, and radio exposure.…plus some others that have gained increased recognition or have been shown to have had an impact during the decades that followed.

    Why only 88 titles when the previous three years were over 120? Beginning on August 1st 1942, the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) had begun an extended, crippling labor action against the recording industry over royalty payments, often referred to as the “Recording Ban” (see the Wikipedia entry “1942-44 musicians’ strike” for an informative read). Until the signing of new agreements with the union, none of the record companies were permitted to make new commercial recordings using union musicians. Among the industry leaders, by the end of 1943 only the established Decca and recently-formed Capitol labels had settled, while the big Victor and Columbia labels would not give in until late ’44.

    Because the labels had built up a bit of a stockpile in anticipation of the shutdown, fresh-sounding material continued to be issued during the early months of the year. But since the popular bands were unable to make any new commercial recordings throughout most or all of 1943 (depending on their label affiliation) and the leading solo vocal stars like Sinatra, Crosby and Haymes were permitted no studio instrumentation to accompany their songs, there was usually no way for consumers to purchase brand new, well-produced recordings of the latest newly-emerging song hits. For some of those tunes, you’ll see a number of vocal tracks here that feature “voice-only” arrangements, plus only the big band recordings that had been made prior to August 1942....some of them reissues from back in the 1930s.

    Lyrics
    I tried,
    Tried to impress you,
    My love,
    I gave it all
    Each hour ever at your beck and call.
    I tried,
    Tried to caress you,
    My soul,
    Filled with desire,
    Two arms craving the one I admire.
    Your charm was so appealing,
    I loved you from the start,
    There's still that same old feeling,
    Concealed here in my heart.
    I tried making you love me,
    And you couldn't decide,
    But I'll never regret that I tried,
    And tried and tried.

  • TOMMY DORSEY & FRANK SINATRA & JO STAFFORD 1940 BROADCAST

    20:05

    Thomas Francis Tommy Dorsey Jr. (/ˈdɔːrsi/, November 19, 1905 – November 26, 1956)[1] was an American jazz trombonist, composer, conductor and bandleader of the Big Band era. He was known as the Sentimental Gentleman of Swing, because of his smooth-toned trombone playing.[2] His technical skill on the trombone gave him renown among other musicians.[3] He was the younger brother of bandleader Jimmy Dorsey.[4] After Dorsey broke with his brother in the mid-1930s, he led an extremely popular and highly successful band from the late 1930s into the 1950s. He is best remembered for standards such as Opus One, Song of India, Marie, On Treasure Island, and his biggest hit single I'll Never Smile Again

  • 1937 HITS ARCHIVE: Once In A While - Tommy Dorsey

    2:40

    One of the decade’s most popular ballads, “Once In A While” spent seven weeks atop “Your Hit Parade,” was revived in 1952 by Patti Page and again in the early ‘60s by The Chimes. See also the flipside “If It’s The Last Thing I Do.”

    Tommy Dorsey, Jr. (November 19, 1905 -- November 26, 1956 was an American jazz trombonist, trumpeter, composer, and bandleader of the Big Band era. He was known as The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing, due to his smooth-toned trombone playing. He was the younger brother of bandleader Jimmy Dorsey. After Dorsey broke with his brother in the mid-1930s, he led an extremely popular band from the late '30s into the 1950s. Dorsey had a reputation for being a perfectionist. He was volatile and also known to hire and fire (and sometimes rehire) musicians based on his mood. On November 26, 1956, Tommy Dorsey died at age 51 in his Greenwich, Connecticut home. Dorsey had eaten a heavy meal and began choking in his sleep. Dorsey customarily began taking sleeping pills regularly at this time, therefore he was so sedated that he was unable to awaken and died from choking.
