Product Description:

Geraldo was one of the major players amongst the dance band fraternity during the nineteen thirties and forties. His approach was always meticulous suave polished and personal. He was always immaculately dressed and presented a smooth image to the world. During WWII he and his orchestra emulated that of Glenn Miller taking to the road to entertain the troops at home and abroad where he established an enormous following and much goodwill. His orchestra was always popular and attracted the best musicians even employing one of Glenn Miller's best arrangers Bill Finegan. His vocalists were always of the highest quality they included Al Bowlly Eve Boswell Jill Day Rosemary Squires and Monte Ray. Geraldo died of a heart attack while on holiday in Vevey Switzerland on May the 4th 1974 but his music lives on as this CD testifies.
