• Russ MORGAN - Never Tired of Music in the Morgan Manner

In the 1930s & 40s, America was awash with dance bands, all vying to make a decent living in difficult times. To stay ahead of the competition, the more dynamic bandleaders knew they needed a trademark, some kind of distinctive sound or gimmick which distinguished them from the others. All the top bands had one or more great vocalists and some were led by superlative musicians - Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Gene Krupa. Vaughn Monroe made his singing the attraction, Guy Lombardo went for snappy, happy arrangements, Jimmie Lunceford and Cab Calloway were great showmen, Kay Kyser had his musical quizzes, Glenn Miller eventually topped them all with sheer all-round quality - arrangements, musicians and vocalists. And Russ Morgan, he had that famous 'wah-wah' trombone and unmistakable singing style.
