FRANK SINATRA and TOMMY DORSEY
Extremely rare 5x7 black and white photograph showing Dorsey in a suit and tie; also signed by Frank Sinatra who began his career singing vocals in Dorsey's band.
Photograph signed: "Tommy Dorsey" and "Frank Sinatra" in blue ink. B/w 5x7. With Dorsey's facsimile signature printed on photo at lower right. Sinatra began his career singing with Dorsey during the swing era before he was signed as a solo artist to Columbia Records in 1943. Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey formed an orchestra together in the early 1930s known as The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra; it included Glenn Miller and Bob Crosby. "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" was first recorded in 1932 by a pick-up recording group under the Dorsey Brothers. In 1935, when Tommy quit after a disagreement between the two brothers, he formed a band of his own from the remnants of Joe Haymes' orchestra; "Sentimental" was his theme song. The brothers reunited in 1953. The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, led mainly by Tommy, but with Jimmy prominently featured, earned national publicity through the Dorseys' own TV program, Stage Show, on CBS (1955-1956). Tommy Dorsey died in 1956 at the age of 51 after choking on food. The multi-talented actor and singer, Frank Sinatra, won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 (as Maggio in From Here to Eternity) and Grammy Awards for Best Pop Vocal in 1959 ("Come Dance With Me"), 1965 ("It Was a Very Good Year") and 1966 ("Strangers in the Night"). After being with the Harry James Orchestra and Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra struck out on his own, becoming the hero of a generation of "bobby-soxers". "Old Blue Eyes" was popular in venues from casinos to concert halls, and his renditions of such tunes as "My Way" and "New York, New York" are inimitable classics. "The Chairman of the Board" was equally well-known for his philanthropies. He was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1970. In 1982 the Dorsey/Sinatra Sessions was released by RCA Records and subsequent records featuring the two have also been released. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Slightly soiled. Lightly worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
