Product Description & Reviews
Hoagland Howard Carmichael was born in 1899, in Bloomington Indiana. He never lost his Midwest drawl or his easygoing manner. His dad was an electrician. His mother augmented the family income by playing piano. She was Hoagy's music teacher. Aged 18, he enrolled at Indiana State University to study law. As organiser and player at student dances, he regularly booked The Wolverines whose line-up included Bix Beiderbecke. Bix and Hoagy struck up an instant friendship. When the Wolverines were booked to record for Gennett, Bix asked Hoagy for a tune. The result was Riverboat Shuffle. Shuffle attracted the attention of the jazz world, but it was a year before Hoagy was asked again. This time he came up with Boneyard Shuffle and Washboard Blues. He played piano on the session. Hoagy qualified as a lawyer and opened a practice in Palm Beach Florida. The Wolverines breezed through and offered him a gig on a cruise. He joined them for the trip. This was probably the last time he considered himself a lawyer rather than a musician. By October 1927, Hoagy was back in Bloomington. While there he recorded his own Stardust with the Emil Seidel Orchestra. It would become America's most recorded melody. Then came a session in Chicago, to record Washboard Blues with The Paul Whiteman Orchestra. Three weeks after recording with Whiteman, Hoagy was in Kansas City with the Jean Goldkette Orchestra. He had been recruited by Goldkette for a five-month run to play piano in a band that already had a pianist. H skills as a singer and songwriter must have secured the gig. Hoagy's career went from strength to strength. He became a Hollywood staple by the start of WW2, and after the war would combine movie acting with songwriting - he was awarded an Oscar in 1952, for In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening. His songs continue to surface. Billy-A-Dick featured in the Bette Midler film 'For The Boys'; Skylark turned up in 'Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil'.
