Holding the title as longest reigning female recording artist at Capitol Records from the 1940s-1960’s, Miss Lee had a staggering 6 decade career spanning from her early discovery in Chicago by “The King of Swing” Benny Goodman (raised on Maxwell Street!) to her hit songwriting skills most notably for Disney’s “Lady & the Tramp” to critically acclaimed acting/singing roles in “Pete Kelly’s Blues” and “The Jazz Singer.” Nominated over her lifetime for 12 Grammy Awards, she won in 1969 for what became her signature tune, Leiber & Stoller’s “Is That All There Is?” Songs include (many of which she co-wrote with Dave Barbour, Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen, Victor Young, Cy Coleman, and others): “Why Don’t You Do Right?,” “I Don’t Know Enough About You,” “Big Spender,” “Black Coffee,” “Manana,” “He’s a Tramp,” “Siamese Cat Song,” “Bella Note,” “Don’t Smoke in Bed,” “I’m a Woman,” “I Like Men,” “It’s a Good Day,” “Is That All There Is?,” “Fever,” and many more!
