Michael Edwards (American composer)

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Michael Edwards (1893-1962) was an American composer and musician, known for composing the 1937 hit "Once in a While". He was also a classical violinist, organist and music arranger.[1]

Edwards's most famous composition, "Once in a While", became a number one hit for Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra, and later for Patti Page (1957) and The Chimes (1961).[2] The song is now considered a jazz standard.[1] None of Edwards's other songs achieved the popularity of "Once in a While", and he has been called "a perfect example of a one-hit composer".[3]
