This is a dated autograph by Artie Shaw (from 1949) I had dug up in the web years ago; it has survived some computer crashes until today (May 21, 2009).
So I took the chance and can now proudly present it to you again, combined with nine musical dreams, recorded by Mr. Shaw between 1937 and 1946.
The most famous of them – beside the psychodelic instrumental Nightmare, Artie’s theme song – is certainly Deep In A Dream with Helen Forrest’s warmhearted vocal delivery.
I wish you good dreams wherever you’re listening.
Nightmarishly yours truly,
Blog owner’s note: This repost was inspired by Marc Myers’ article in today’s JazzWax.
P.S.: One of his later RCA-Lp-covers was entitled “A Man And His Dream”, but the fellow on that cover is definitely not Artie Shaw.
It’s some other bald head who just looks like him… NOT! ;)
