Tommy Dorsey Tribute  Tom Daugherty

TD Orchestra

Tommy Dorsey is recognized as having one of the greatest all around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them and featured stars like trumpeters Ziggy Elman, Bunny Berigan, and Peewee Erwin, tenor saxist Bud Freeman, clarinetist Johnny Mince and Buddy DeFranco, drummer Davey Tough and the world’s greatest drummer, Buddy Rich. Tommy Dorsey, "The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing," was a master at creating moods -- warm, sentimental and forever musical moods -- at superb dancing and listening tempos. And he showcased singers who could project those moods wonderfully--Jack Leonard, Jo Stafford, The Pied Pipers, and of course the most famous: Frank Sinatra. During the 1950’s, Tommy Dorsey had one of the first television Big Band variety shows and featured two new unknown singers: Elvis Presley and Connie Francis.
