First Lady Of Swing


Back in those days, most featured performers in the band business had a tag, a slogan, and Anita O'Day's first billing with the Stan Kenton orchestra was 'A Bombshell In Modern Music'! Fortunately, this was soon replaced by the far more appropriate 'First Lady Of Swing' - appropriate because while most of the singers who worked with Kenton over the years were more or less 'unknowns' when they joined him, Anita was different. In 1943, after two years as featured vocalist with Gene Krupa's band, touring, broadcasting and making big hit records like "Let Me Off Uptown", Anita was one of the top band singers in the United States.
