Description

This is a story 'based on' the life of Doris Dixon who had a burning ambition to become a professional jazz singer during the 1930's. Doris came from a privileged English background and was highly educated with her parents expectations of her going into the 'professions.' By luck, at a students reunion in a London nightclub, Doris created her chance to sing with a visiting American Jazz Band and was engaged by them 'on the spot' as Dixie Dixon, their singer; subsequently 'treading the boards' in America was no easy task. But Dixie met and sang with the greatest jazz /swing bands of of her time. Because of her early demise, little is known about Dixie Dixon, so this book puts her right back there in the jazz spotlight where she fought so hard to be.
