    Tommy Dorsey Signed Window Card. Tommy Dorsey was one of the shrewdest and most savvy of the big band leaders. When the rest of the big band began to die off in the late 1940's, Tommy Dorsey's band was still thriving. Dorsey's greatest years were in the 1940s when he added drummer Buddy Rich and vocalist Frank Sinatra to his band. The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra was strong in every area and one of the band's greatest strengths was the leader's own brilliant trombone work. After reuniting with brother Jimmy in 1953, Tommy enjoyed great success in television right up until his untimely death in 1956. This cleverly designed card features an image of Dorsey, plus a drawing of him playing his trombone. Tommy has signed on his image. Accompanied by COA from Jazz & Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.
