Martha Tilton — And The Angels Sing

Thanks to Liltin’ Miss Tilton Fan for the You Tube

This performance was a television reunion of Martha Tilton with the Benny Goodman Orchestra and with the trumpet solo by Ziggy Elman. It was a kinescope copy of the broadcast on CBS television network from 1956, It commemorates the famous performance of the song at Carnegie Hall in the late 1930’s. I first saw Martha Tilton and  I remember her  from a short 15 minute musical program before the local news in Los Angeles that she did in the late 1950’s with Curt Massey and Country Washburn.  Later, I heard the Carnegie Hall Concert and heard her famous performance.  Martha Tilton replaced Helen Ward as female singer for Benny Goodman.  Martha Tilton was a great singer.
