- Howard, To read everything you DID NOT WANT to know about Annette, go to http://www.dgarrick.com/annettehanshaw/annettehanshaw.php I DO NOT recommend twoMessage 1 of 35 , Jul 9, 2006View SourceHoward,
To read everything you DID NOT WANT to know about Annette, go to
I DO NOT recommend two videos available in that site:
1. Annette herself singing "We Just Couldn't Say Goodbye."
2. A charming cartoon with an Annette soundtrack, "Sita Sings the
Blues," "Nina Pauly's animated feature based on Sita's adventures in
the ancient Indian epic the Ramayana."
Did the elderly gentlemen also suddenly become tennis fans and develop
a passion for Maria Sharapova? :-)
PS I freely admit I am elderly (but not a gentleman), and that Annette
is my favorite female vocalist from the 1920s.

- Yes, you re right. I was (clumsily) trying to provide an explanation why he was not described as Musician anywhere (aside from the AFM).

same time as other members of Moten's band.
