  • 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.

    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.

    Recorded in 1939

    Jack Leonard - 1914-1988

    One of the top male vocalists of the late 1930s, Jack Leonard was rivaled only by Bing Crosby in popularity. Leonard was working in Bert Block's orchestra in 1935 when Tommy Dorsey hired him away. Dorsey also took trumpeter Joe Bauer and arranger Axel Stordahl, then known as Odd Stordahl. Together the men formed a vocal group call the Three Esquires. It was as a soloist, though, that Leonard would achieve stardom, singing on such classics as ''Marie,'' ''All the Things You Are,'' ''Our Love,'' and ''Indian Summer.''

    Leonard was a shy, handsome man who was liked by all. He was very near-sighted but refused to wear glasses in public so as not to spoil his romantic image. His departure from Dorsey's orchestra in November of 1939 was a surprise to his bandmates. The rumor was that Dorsey had grown suspicious of Leonard's intentions, fearing that he was going to leave soon for a solo career, and had forced him out, though Leonard himself tried to dispel it at the time, saying he just needed a break and would return soon. He never did. He was replaced in the band by Alan DeWitt, who failed to work out and was replaced after only one month by Frank Sinatra.

    Leonard continued singing professionally throughout the 1940s and at least into the 1950s, though he never achieved the level of recognition as a solo artist that he had as a band vocalist. He had appeared in a few uncredited film roles in the 1930s, and in the late 1940s he returned to the silver screen three more times. He also hosted his own television program in 1949 and appeared as one of the hosts for Broadway Open House in 1951. In 1956 he performed at the memorial concert in tribute to Dorsey. Jack Leonard died from cancer in 1988.

  • Tommy Dorsey Stereo - Fascinating Rhythm Pt. 1 - 1943 Stereo - Gershwin - Girl Crazy

    3:42

    The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra plays Sy Oliver's amazing arrangement of George Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm in the 1943 MGM musical Girl Crazy.

    I've replaced the audio on the mono soundtrack with stereo from the CD. Stereo tracks exist since MGM recorded the music using multiple mics before mixing it down to mono for the film soundtrack.

    Happily, dedicated audio techs preserved the orchestral angles on 1/4 tape when Louis B. Mayer ordered all original elements destroyed in the early 50s.

    Here's the list of musicians at the January 12, 1943 recording session at MGM Studios in Culver City.

    VIOLINS: Si Miroff, Bernie Tinterow, Lenny Posner (concertmaster), Bill Ehrenkrantz, Alex Beller, Eugene Lamas, Albert Bertchamp, I. Boguslawski, Sam Albert, Sam Fiedler, Cyril Towbin, Jaime Overton, Louis Sarli, Otto Landau, Sarah Kreindler, Mischa Levienne

    I want to be ha-ha-happy
    But I won't be ha-ha-happy
    Till I make you ha-ha-happy too

    Life's really worth li-li-living
    When we are mirth gi-gi-giving
    Why can't I give so-some to you

    When skies are gray
    And you, you, you
    Say you are blue
    I'll send the sun smi-iling through

    I want to be ha-ha-happy
    But I won't be ha-ha-happy
    Till I make you ha-ha-happy too
