Paul Whiteman

Real Name:
Paul Samuel Whiteman
Profile:
American bandleader and orchestral director, born 28 March 1890 in Denver, Colorado, USA; died 29 December 1967 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA.

Almost certainly the instigator of the pre-Swing early Jazz music, before trumpeter Louis Armstrong came along later, with Fletcher Henderson progressing the Swing sound further.

He was leader of the most popular dance bands in the US during the 1920s. With his band, he was often referred to him as the "King Of Jazz" during this time, and this was reflected in his earnings accordingly.
