Famed musician Jimmy Dorsey was born in 1904 in Pennsylvania. When they were only teenagers, Dorsey and his younger brother, Tommy, formed Dorsey's Novelty Six, later known as Dorseys' Wild Canaries. During the 1920s, both brothers worked in various bands and as freelance and studio musicians, mostly in New York City. Jimmy Dorsey later led the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, which scored hit singles like "Contrasts," "Amapola," "Tangerine," "Green Eyes" and "Maria Elena." The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra has continued successfully touring the country to this day.
