Interludes with Anna Marie
Anna Marie Genovese, a gifted singer from Syracuse, New York, born in 1929, began enchanting audiences from a young age. Known professionally as "Anna Marie," she released her only LP, "Interludes with Anna Marie," on the Syracuse-based Vesta label in January 1955. Nat Hentoff praised the album in Down Beat, awarding it four stars. Despite being paralyzed by polio since age one, Anna Marie's determination and talent shone brightly. Self taught, she arranged her own music and won the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour in 1949 at 18. She performed with renowned bands like Tommy Dorsey and Tex Beneke, gained national attention on "Chance of a Lifetime" in 1954, and appeared on Steve Allen’s “Tonight Show.” Anna Marie preferred the creative freedom of working with a small group. For her album, she collaborated with Syracusan pianist Bill Rubenstein and his trio, creating an intimate and memorable musical experience. In 1970, Anna Marie retired from the music scene and moved to Florida. She spent the next 30 years in the antiques business and volunteered at Woodside Hospice and Tandem Rehabilitation Center. Anna Marie passed away at 71 on April 1, 2001, in Seminole, Florida.

Marilyn… The Most
Marilyn Maye, born on April 10, 1928, in Wichita, Kansas, is a celebrated singer whose career spans over eight decades. Encouraged by her mother, she began singing and dancing at age three and won a talent show at age nine, which led to a 13-week radio show. After high school in 1946, Marilyn became a vocalist for WHAS radio in Louisville, Kentucky. She then embarked on a solo career, performing in nightclubs from Chicago to Miami, Omaha, and New Orleans. By 1953, Marilyn had moved to Kansas City, becoming a local entertainment staple. In 1958, she married pianist and arranger Sammy Tucker, forming a dynamic act that captivated Kansas City music lovers. In 1961, Marilyn recorded her album "Marilyn the Most" for the newly formed Holly Records, featuring songs by Carl Bolte Jr. This album caught the attention of television host Steve Allen, who invited Marilyn to appear on his variety show, marking an important milestone in her career. Marilyn's career continued to flourish with regular performances, participation in Kansas City Jazz Week, numerous national television appearances, recording sessions on both coasts, and a contract with RCA-Victor Records. With her unique style and enduring presence in the entertainment industry, Marilyn Maye remains a beloved figure in music. Now in her nineties, she continues to perform, maintaining a dedicated fan base and leaving an indelible mark on the world of music.
