I love Henry Hall. One of my all time favorites. But, what I truly love is Val Rosing‘s (birth name) voice. His stage name had become Gilbert Russell (and later legally), though I find that pretty silly as Val Rosing is a beautiful name, which is also, I’d think, very marketable.
In the ’20s, ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s, bandleaders of the big band era were the one’s who called all the shots and received the most credit. Most of the songs, list Henry Hall or Henry Hall & His Orchestra as the primary artist and credit. But the true beauty behind these wonderfully eerie songs such as: “Hush, Hush, Hush, Here Comes the Bogeyman” and “Teddy Bear’s Picnic”, I would give Mr. Rosing credit for.
Here’s a video of his daughter (who also became a singer) performing “Teddy Bear’s Picnic”:
