Artist description "Anthony, Ray"

Ray Anthony

The bandleader and celebrated trumpeter Ray Anthony was born as Raymond Antonini in Bentleyville PA. on the 20th January 1922. 

For more than sixty years Ant- hony has been a name in the bigband scene, and has played a great part in helping America‘sgolden age
of iazz and danceband music to stay alive. Born into a musical family he began his career at the age of five, playing the trumpet in the 
family band " The Antonini Family Band ”. During his high school years he played with a few local bands from Cleveland, Ohio and the 
area, and then at the age of eighteen ma- de his professional debut joining the brass section of "AI Donahue‘s”band. 

After Iessthanayearwith l“Donahue”, Anthony’s big break came when he joined up with 
The Glen Miller Orchestra (soon to be called,I’The most popular dance orchestra in the world), which unfortunately ended after only six 
months, due to the many conflicts and differences between the young trumpeter and the band leader. In 1941 he joined Jimmy Dorsey’s
band at a time when they were selling millions of records and played alongside Dorsey's vocalists Bob Eberly and Helen O’Connell. 
In the same year the U.S.A. was pulled into World War II and Anthony was called up to serve in the US. Navy.

During the war Anthony met up and become friends with Fred Benson who inspired him to start up his own band. As soon as the war
ended and the first opportunity appeared, Anthony and Benson teamed up to form the first Ray Anthony Bond. Between 1946 and 1949 
the bands popularity slowly began to grow and after countless tours and concerts (mainly in the middle west of America) they were finally 
rewarded with a record contract with Capitol Records in Hollywood.

During the fifties he had numerous hits including, "Peter Gunn”, “The Bunny Hop", Harbor Lights” and a iazzed up version of the
 “Dragnet” theme song, and in the some decade appeared in the movies, "This Could be the Night”, and “Daddy Long Legs” featuring 
Fred Astaire. In 1953 Anthony’s band teamed up with Bob Eberly and Helen O‘Connell in a National Network T.V. program and soon 
even had their own T.V. show.

The popularity of most of the bigbands in the fifties started to rapidly decline, but Ray Anthony’s Orchestra under the expert guidance of 
his friend Fred Benson stayed on top until well into the 19605 . From the mid sixties on the market and interest for big bands started to
drop, so Ray went on numerous "Lounge tour” circuits with a sextet and a female vocal duo called I'The Bookends”. As the interest for
this group grew Anthony constantly enlarged the lineup ending up with ten musicians and six female vocalists. 
Ray Anthony carried on recording and performing with various musicians although the 1970‘s and during the 19805 he began touring with
 a bigband again. True to his roots he also formed "Big band 805”, an organisa- tion dedicated to popularise bigband music in schools, 
radio stations and other venues. l“The Golden Trumpet”, Mr. Ray Anthony came up through the Glenn Miller ranks and has been one of 
big band music’s most dedicated ambassadors over the years.
