Summary

As a companion to The Best Damn Trumpet Player and The Song Stars, this is the last of a trilogy, with a foreword by Bob Hope, explores the world of male vocalists. Richard Grudens initiates a retrospective tribute to the early singers Al Jolson and Bing Crosby, Fats Waller and Nat King Cole. His heart-warming interviews or vignettes with living-legend artists, Frank Sinatra, Jack Jones, Vic Damone, Steve Lawrence, Tony Martin, Johnny Mathis, Guy Mitchell, Eddie Fisher, Andy Williams and Don Cornell are revealing, anecdotal gems. And who could forget Dick Haymes, The Ink Spots, Ray Eberle and Bob Eberly, and Billy Eckstine. Features: Donald Mills and the Mills Brothers, Sam Arlen talks of his father, Harold Arlen, and a look at Lou Lanza, Philadelphia's new singing star. The author provides a special insight into the lives of the Music Men and provides over 60 exceptional photographs to enrich your reading pleasure.
