“If you want to be a musi­cian, study your craft. Study music.” Billy Eck­s­tine Amer­i­can vocal­ist and band­leader of the swing era. His record­ing of “I Apol­o­gize” (MGM, 1948) was awarded the 1999 Grammy Hall of Fame Award. Dizzy Gille­spie, reflect­ing on the band in his 1979 auto­bi­og­ra­phy To Be or Not to Bop, gives this per­spec­tive: “There was no band that sounded like Billy Eckstine’s. Our attack was strong, and we were play­ing bebop, the mod­ern style. No other band like this one existed in the world.”
