Wikipedia : This day (June 12, 1957), in New York City, New York, died Jimmy Dorsey, an American jazz clarinetist, saxophonist, trumpeter, composer and big band leader.

@allmusic : In the early and late periods of his career, he co-led bands with his younger brother Tommy; in between, he scored a series of Latin-tinged hits that established his orchestra as one of the most successful recording and performing units of the early ’40s.

@last.fm : He was born in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, the son of a music teacher, but overshadowed by his younger brother Tommy Dorsey, the prominent musician. He played trumpet in his youth, appearing on stage in a Vaudeville act as early as 1913.
