Ruth Etting

One of the most popular singers of the late-'20s/early-'30s period, Ruth Etting was not really a jazz singer (unlike her contemporary, Annette Hanshaw) but a superior middle-of-the-road pop singer who was often accompanied by top jazz musicians. She recorded over 200 songs between 1926-1937, appeared on-stage, was in 35 film shorts and three full-length movies, and was a fixture on radio before her bad marriage cut short her career. She made a minor comeback in the late '40s and was still singing on an occasional basis in the mid-'50s when a semi-fictional Hollywood movie on her life (Love Me or Leave Me) was released. A superb torch singer with a cry in her voice even when she smiled, Etting recorded the definitive versions of "Ten Cents a Dance" and "Love Me or Leave Me." ~ Scott Yanow

I wasn't born in the right generation. This music feels like it fits right. I don't know I feel like I fit in when I hear music from the 1920's - 1960's.

She is one of the best, but Pandora should not be playing her with REVERB which did not exist in the twenties and thirties.

Please stay true to the time!

Ruth Etting sounds great. I saw the movie version of her life; and have always wanted to hear the real "Ruth" sing.
