Carroll Gibbons
Birth: Jan. 4, 1903
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 10, 1954
City of London
Greater London, England

Pianist and dance band leader. Gibbons led the "Savoy Sylveans" and later the "Savoy Orpheans." In 1932, he began recording under his own name. Through the radio, he became a household name with popular tunes like A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, Dancing in the Dark, and I'm Going to Get Lit Up. His last recording was made in 1950 and marked the end of a remarkable recording career. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)

Listening to your song "A Garden in the Rain" with your orchestra sung by Georges Metaxa. Believe it was you on the piano. What beauty you contributed to the world.
