TOMMY DORSEY
Pink album leaf signed "Sincerely" in blue ink by big band leader Tommy Dorsey, with small b/w magazine photo
Autograph sentiment signed: "Sincerely/Tommy Dorsey" in blue ink. 5½x4½ with rounded right corners. With 3¼x1¾ b/w magazine photo affixed near right edge. Brothers TOMMY DORSEY (1905-1956, born Thomas Francis Dorsey, Jr. in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania) and JIMMY DORSEY (1904-1957, born James Dorsey in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania) 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. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Light discoloration in center of leaf, which touches signature, and near left edge. Leaf is rippled by photo's adhesive (does not touch signature). Light tears in top corners. Leaf was cut from album at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
