Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ella Mae Morse (September 12, 1924 - October 16, 1999), was an American popular singer. Morse blended jazz, country, pop, and R&B. Morse was born in Mansfield, Texas. She was hired by Jimmy Dorsey when she was 14 years old. Dorsey believed she was 19, and when he was informed by the school board that he was now responsible for her care, he fired her. In 1942, at the age of 17, she joined Freddie Slack's band, with whom in the same year she recorded "Cow Cow Boogie," Capitol Records' first gold single. "Mr. Five by Five" was also recorded by Morse with Slack and they had a hit recording with the song in 1942 (Capitol 115). She also originated the wartime hit "Milkman, Keep Those Bottles Quiet," which was later popularized by Nancy Walker in the film, Broadway Rhythm.show more
