Dorsey signs his name "Sincerely"
Autograph sentiment signed: "Sincerely/Tommy Dorsey", in black ink, 4½x6. 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. Light surface creases. Binding holes on top margin. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on front and verso. Small stain on bottom left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
