Top Artists

  • Harry Babbitt
    A native of St Louis, Harry Babbitt was born in 1913 and became the lead male singer with Kay Kyser's band. After serving two years in the US Navy, Babbitt rejoined Kyser awhile before embarking on a successful solo career.
  • Harry James
    Trumpet ace Harry James (1916-83), was a top sideman with Goodman, married Betty Grable and became a bandleader.
  • Harry Roy
    Diminutive and peppy, Harry Roy was happy to maintain his 'King Of Hotcha' image. His recording of Eeny Meeny Miney Mo was made when he was resident at the Mayfair Hotel.
  • Helen Kane
     The 'Boop-Boop-a-Doop' girl Helen Kane epitomized the flapper era of the late Twenties and no song is more representative of this than I Wanna Be Loved By You, introduced by Helen in the Broadway musical 'Good Boy'. Her distinctive style became widely imitated, and gave rise to the Betty Boop film cartoons.
  • Helen OConnell
    Ray Eberle was joined by the personable Helen O'Connell early in 1939. Listen to her sultry, Billie Holiday-influenced All Of Me.
  • Henry Hall
    Henry Hall made a major impact on the popular music scene through the medium of the 'wireless' as we used to know it. Appointed from outside the West End coterie to direct the BBC's own dance orchestra in 1932, he received much unsolicited advice from other more established, and perhaps envious, members of his profession. This he chose to ignore, having already devised his own formula for success.
  • Henry Red Allen
    Red Allen was a trumpet star and fine jazz vocalist who but for the commanding presence of Louis Armstrong would have gained wider public recognition.
  • Hildegarde
    Born in Wisconsin, Hildegarde only retired in 1995. Her last London appearance was an unforgettable two week engagement at London's Pizza on the Park in October 1992. Capture if you will her sophisticated charm at work on I Believe In Miracles and The Glory Of Love.
  • Hoagy Carmichael
    The laconic, jazz-orientated singer-songwriter Hoagy Carmichael played a number of supporting roles in films, and usually got to sing one of his songs at some point.
  • Howard Lanin
    Howard Lanin &  His Orchestra's unforgettable track Black Bottom, became all the rage in Britain in 1927.
  • Hutch
    Popular, attractive, handsome, well-dressed and unfailingly courteous - this was Leslie Hutchinson, known to everyone simply as Hutch (1900-1969).  Born in Grenada, he was sent to New York as a sixteen year old to study medicine, and supplemented his allowance by playing piano. He soon found that he was more interested in music than in medicine, and let his studies slide - which is fortunate for us!
  • Helen Forrest
