PAUL WHITEMAN "The King Of Jazz"

March 28, 1890 - December 29, 1967
Paul Whiteman's Orchestra was the most popular band of the 1920s. They are also the most controversial to Jazz historians because Whiteman billed himself as "The King Of Jazz".  On February 12, 1924 Whiteman created a sensation with his debut of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, with George Gershwin at the piano. Another familiar piece in Whiteman's repertoire was Grand Canyon Suite. Whiteman hired many of the best jazz musicians, including Bix Beiderbecke, Frankie Trumbauer, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Steve Brown, Mike Pingitore, Gussie Mueller, Wilbur Hall, Jack Teagarden, and Bunny Berigan.
