Photograph Inscribed and Signed: "To Ed:/Swing & Sway/Sammy Kaye". B/w 8x10. Sammy Kaye (1910-1987), was the leader of one of the most popular "sweet" bands of the big band era. A popular performer on radio and in venues from New York (the Commodore Hotel's Century Room, The Roosevelt Grill, etc.) to the Hollywood Palladium to cities across America, Kaye received his "million dollar tagline", "Swing and Sway With Sammy Kaye", from an announcer at the Cabin Club in Cleveland, Ohio. Kaye was as well known for his audience-participation novelty, "So You Want to Lead a Band?", as he was for his hits, which included his theme song, "Kaye's Melody", and "It Isn't Fair", "Daddy", "Room Full of Roses", "Charade" and "Harbor Lights". In addition to being a prolific recording artist for RCA Victor, Columbia and American Decca, Kaye and his band appeared in the films Iceland (1942) and Song of the Open Road (1944), and Kaye wrote songs for 1987's Radio Days. In 1986, he turned over his baton to Roger Thorpe, who continues to lead The Sammy Kaye Orchestra today. Creased and chipped at corners. Soiled at top and bottom right and collar of jacket. Paper sticker and ink stamp as well as pencil scribbles on verso.
