Doris Day is 88 years young (at heart) today and although not a jazz singer a lot of her early tracks had some quite swingy accompaniments such as this 1947 recording.
Happy birthday Doris.

And a very good big band vocalist, very underrated on those many sides she recorded with Les Brown.
Happy Birthday Doris...

Doris Day's music has been underrated from the very beginning by so-called music critics. Ask the people who count: deejays the world around and millions of fans over the years who swear no one can sing any song any better. With that in mind, I wrote a book.
I am a newly-published author and this new book about Doris Day covers a period of over 60 years. "MY 'SECRET LOVE' AFFAIR WITH DORIS DAY" by Michael J DeVita is available NOW on www.amazon.com. Check out the reviews and read the story. Besides the 60 plus year story, the book's primary focus is on the music recorded by Doris Day and how that music affected the author's own life at various times in his career.
