Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leonard George "Lennie" Hayton (14 February 1908 - 24 April 1971) was an American Jewish composer, conductor and arranger. His trademark was the wearing of a captain's hat, which he always wore at a rakish angle. He was initially a pianist in jazz groups led by Frankie Trumbauer, Bix Beiderbecke, Red Nichols, Joe Venuti and others. He also played with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Hayton composed "Apple Blossoms" with Joe Venuti, Frankie Trumbauer, and Eddie Lang. His other compositions included "Flying Fingers," "The Stage is Set," "Mood Hollywood" with Jimmy Dorsey, and "Midnight Mood." Hayton also co-arranged the Hoagy Carmicheal composition "Stardust" with Artie Shaw, for Shaw's recording of it in 1940, for Bluebird records.show more
