I just discovered Solid!, an online encyclopedia of big band and classic jazz, featuring biographies of jazz artists from the 19-teens through the 60's. It appears the site may not have been updated in several years, but the information that is already there makes very interesting browsing. For example, in the mid-1930's, the young lady at left was a vocalist for the Anson Weeks' orchestra, which at one time or another included Bob Crosby and Xavier Cugat; and backed Bob's brother Bing Crosby on one of his earliest hits. She went on to Hollywood and the movies, where she changed her style a bit by donning a cowboy hat eventually marrying the King of the Cowboys. Yes, folks. That is Dale Evans in her pre-cowgirl days.
