Artie Shaw
You run into a party and [a] woman comes up to you. She's the most beautiful creature you ever saw Ava Gardner and says, "I like you and why don't we get together?" What are you going to say, "No"? You'd have to be an idiot. She was an incredible creature.
Shaw quotes
It became such a hit that it superseded anything that any band had ever had. It was the first time that a so-called swing band played something melodic and still gave it a beat.
