The son of stage actor/playwright Arthur L. Jarrett (1884-1960), Arthur Jarrett was a prominent singer in the 1930s and 1940s. Near the end of the 1920s he recorded for Victor and Brunswick with dance orchestras of Ted Weems, Earl Burtnett, Red Nichols, Jimmie Noone and 'Frankie Trumbauer' . He was famous for his high tenor "counter melody" style. He made many feature films and shorts, and introduced such hit songs "Everything I Have is Yours" (Dancing Lady (1933)), "Let's Fall in Love" (Let's Fall in Love (1933)) "Did You Ever See a Dream Walking" (Sitting Pretty (1933)) and "I've Got a Date With a Dream" (My Lucky Star (1938)). He led his own orchestra in the mid-'30s while married to swimmer Eleanor Holm. He starred in one "B" western. He took over Hal Kemp's band in early 1941 after Kemp was killed in an auto accident. Jarrett also appeared on Broadway in "Three After Three" (aka "Walk With Music"). He led orchestras throughout the 1940s before becoming a disc jockey and later a salesman. read more
