Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Matty Malneck (December 9, 1903 - February 25, 1981) was an American jazz violinist, violist and songwriter. Malneck's first professional gigs as a violinist began when he was age 16. He worked with Paul Whiteman from 1926 to 1937, and also recorded in the same period with Frank Signorelli, Frankie Trumbauer, Bix Beiderbecke, and Mildred Bailey. He led his own big band in 1938-39 and shot short films with vocalist Liz Tilton in the 1940s. He recorded as aleader for London Records in 1932 and Decca Records in 1938-39. Malneck's credits as a songwriter have overshadowed his contributions as a performer. He composed several songs which became pop standards, including "I'll Never Be the Same," "I'm Through With Love," "Goody Goody," "Eeny Meeny Miney Mo," and "If You Were Mine" (lyrics by Johnny Mercer and recorded by Billie Holiday in New York City on October 25, 1935 for Brunswick 7554).show more
