Description
More than just novelty acts, the groups represented on this disc boasted a cadre of musicians who could swing with the best of their male cohorts (Blanche Calloway was Cab's sister and Lil Armstrong was Satchmo's first wife). Probably the most renowned was the International Sweethearts of Rhythm; the nation's first all-female integrated big band, it was composed primarily of African Americans but was open to all races. The Sweethearts were quite the sensation in the big band era, touring the U.S. and war-torn Europe before disbanding in 1949. Ina Ray Hutton led an all-male orchestra as well as her Melodears All-Girl Orchestra, while Satchmo called Valaida Snow "the world's second best jazz trumpet player." Songs include "Tiger Rag," "Shaking the Blues Away," "I Gotta Swing," "Truckin'," "Riffin' the Blues," "Don't Tetch It," "Harlem on Saturday Night," "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," "Minnie the Moocher," "There Won't Be a Shortage of Love," "Feed the Kitty," "Blue Lou," "Hollywood Boogie," and "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You."

"Dolly Dawn was one of the first vocalists to become the sole focus of a band, at a time when bands and musicians were still the main draw. Ella Fitzgerald called Miss Dawn an influence on her own singing…. When Walter Winchell coined the term 'canary' for female singers, he was referring to her. She sang first with George Hall and His Orchestra, and then with a group carved out of the band."—New York Times
