Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Helen Humes (June 23, 1913 - September 9, 1981) was an American jazz and blues singer. Humes was successively a teenaged blues singer, band vocalist with Count Basie, saucy R&B diva and a mature interpreter of the classy popular song. Humes was born in Louisville, Kentucky, was spotted by the guitarist Sylvester Weaver and made her first recordings in 1927, her true young voice consorting oddly with bizarre material like "Garlic Blues." She moved to New York City in 1937 and became a recording vocalist with Harry James' big band. Her swing recordings with James included "Jubilee," "I Can Dream Can't I," "That's the Dreamer in Me" and "Song of the Wanderer."show more
