Annette Hanshaw

One of the first great female jazz singers, in the late '20s Annette Hanshaw ranked near the top with Ethel Waters, the Boswell Sisters, and the upcoming Mildred Bailey. Unlike her contemporary Ruth Etting, Hanshaw could improvise and swing while also being a strong interpreter of lyrics. She was not quite 16 when she started her recording career, and her recordings (1926-1934) included such major jazz players as Red Nichols, Miff Mole, Jimmy Lytell, Adrian Rollini, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Vic Berton, Benny Goodman, Manny Klein, Phil Napoleon, Jimmy Dorsey, Tommy Dorsey, and Jack Teagarden. Billed as "the Personality Girl," Annette Hanshaw (whose trademark was saying, "That's all" at the end of her record) soon got tired of show business and retired in 1934, at the age of 24. She lived outside of music for the rest of her life, but fortunately most of her records were reissued on British LPs in the 1970s and '80s. ~ Scott Yanow

I sent in a good number of requests asking them to expand this genre/early jazz. Lots of 'holes' and omissions!

This is the genre that pandora cannot get right. There is so much music yet pandora only draws from limited selections of a small few of the most common artists.

Gland am not the only one that loves the Holden olden days of jazz age. Her voice is so beautiful to listen. Wish I lived in this time of era. Too bad in the future generation won't appreciate this kind of music in the future. Even now they only sing about dumb stuff.

I miss this era wished I had taken the time to enjoy it.

The story about her professional career starting at 16 turns out not to be true. Someone looked into the Social Security death records, and it turns out she was 26. A surviving relative said it would have been like her to lie about her age.

Fantastic, her voice takes you far away to another time, I wish I was there.

I have a dvd of Sita Sings the Blues and love it,Sweethear t s singing about their men and visa versa was the theme of the day croonin' and spoonin' were in.I play violin and love Joe Venuti who was on the Hanshaw cuts......wh a t great talents they all were,singing and playing romantic love songs with a hot jazz swing...it will always be alive in my heart.The juxtapositio n yet perfect blend of India, Rama and Sita's love break up and american jazz shows how universal this all is.

Sita Sings the Blues was amazing. Err'one should go watch it. Nina Paley, the writer and animator, wrote in Annette Hanshaw's songs, but had to pay a huge fee (like 50,000) for the 80-year old copyright, and is currently collecting donations for her works. She does not have a copyright on her films, so you can watch the full versions she has uploaded to YouTube for free! I highly recommend them :)

Isn't it a shame there are no great singers like Annette nowadays??

If you love Annette Hanshaw check out the animated movie Sita Sings the Blues starring the vocals of Annette Hanshaw in a retelling of the ancient Hindu epic the Ramayana. It's brilliant - you can find it online.

This music makes me get goosebumps all over--I just LOVE it, and Annette Hanshaw is one of my absolute favorites! May her music live on forever!

I love the flexibilty of Annette Hanshaw's singing style, there is such a joy in her voice that is just wonderful.
Report as inappropriate
Annette Hanshaw mellow (hardly syrupy) and easy on the ear, forever listenable. I love you Annette. Thank you forever for the golden Jazz Age memories.
Report as inappropriate
Annette Hanshaw, like Ruth Etting typified the earliest of electronic recorded music. Her syrupy delivery set a standard for female crooning.
