Paul Whiteman - King of Jazz

Paul Whiteman

King of Jazz


Paul Samuel Whiteman (March 28, 1890 – December 29, 1967) was an American bandleader, composer, orchestral director, and violinist.[1][2]As the leader of one of the most popular dance bands in the United States during the 1920s and early 1930s, Whiteman produced recordings that were immensely successful, and press notices often referred to him as the "King of Jazz". Some of his most popular recordings included "Whispering", "Valencia", "Three O'Clock In The Morning", "In A Little Spanish Town", "Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers", and "Wang Wang Blues". Paul Whiteman led a usually large ensemble and explored many styles of music, such as blending symphonic music and jazz, as in his debut of Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin.[3]Whiteman recorded many jazz and pop standards during his career, including "Wang Wang Blues", "Mississippi Mud", "Rhapsody in Blue", "Wonderful One", "Hot Lips (He's Got Hot Lips When He Plays Jazz)", "Mississippi Suite", "Grand Canyon Suite", and "Trav'lin' Light". He co-wrote the 1925 jazz classic "Flamin' Mamie". His popularity faded in the swing music era of the mid-1930s, and by the 1940s he was semi-retired from music. He experienced a revival and had a comeback in the 1950s with his own network television series, Paul Whiteman's Goodyear Revue, which ran for three seasons. He also hosted the 1954 ABC talent contest show On the Boardwalk with Paul Whiteman.
Whiteman's place in the history of early jazz is somewhat controversial. Detractors suggest that his ornately orchestrated music was jazz in name only, lacking the genre's improvisational and emotional depth, and co-opted the innovations of black musicians. Defenders note that Whiteman's fondness for jazz was genuine. He worked with black musicians as much as was feasible during an era of racial segregation. His bands included many of the era's most esteemed white musicians, and his groups handled jazz admirably as part of a larger repertoire.[4]Critic Scott Yanow declares that Whiteman's orchestra "did play very good jazz...His superior dance band used some of the most technically skilled musicians of the era in a versatile show that included everything from pop tunes and waltzes to semi-classical works and jazz. [...] Many of his recordings (particularly those with Beiderbecke) have been reissued numerous times and are more rewarding than his detractors would lead one to believe.[5]In his autobiography, Duke Ellington declared, "Paul Whiteman was known as the King of Jazz, and no one as yet has come near carrying that title with more certainty and dignity.[6]

People are Strange is Back - Released August 2018

People are Strange
by Kevin Dellinger

A very original song called, "People are Strange" was written in 1967 by Robert Krieger and Jim Morrison. The song was written due to the depression of Jim Morrison at that time. Laurel Canyon was the influence to the song.

After its release by "the Doors", it soon became a hit. The original song is 2:12 in length. It represents isolation. The song is heartfelt from depression of feeling alienated and cast out of society. 

There have been many covers done by different bands since 1987. Now, "People are Strange" is back. Independent recording artist, Kevin Dellinger has released a new licensed cover of this song. The official single release was August 29th 2018. It is available at Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer and Tidal.

Kevin Dellinger has been an independent artist since 1990. His genres are electronic and alternative in nature. His inspirations came from progressive rock bands such as Pink Floyd, R.E.M., U2, Depeche Mode, New Order and the Cure. Kevin Dellinger also listened to the Doors throughout childhood in the 1980s.

Recently, Kevin decided to do a cover song of "People are Strange." The voice is almost similar to Jim Morrison. Kevin was always told his voice was similar over the years. Also soon to be released will be "Light My Fire" by Kevin Dellinger. Be on the lookout for more licensed cover songs by Kevin Dellinger in the near future of 2018.

Listen to this preview of the song right here:


You can listen to over 30 albums by Kevin Dellinger on his website. This includes covers and singles. Visit his website at kmdellinger.com.

Share the new song of "People are Strange". Let us remember the Doors. We shall never forget.
There was a great magical moment of inspiration that created this song. It has meaning that although we may feel alone in the world. Maybe we should be more connected.

Peace,
Kevin Dellinger
