Paul Whiteman (March 28, 1890 December 29, 1967) was an American orchestral leader. He was born in Denver, Colorado. After a start as a classical violinist and violist, Whiteman then led a jazz-influenced dance band, which became locally popular in San Francisco, California in 1918. In 1920 he moved his band to New York City where they started making recordings for Victor Records which propelled Whiteman and his band to national prominence. Whiteman became the most popular band leader of the decade. In May 1928, he signed with Columbia Records, only to return to Victor September 1931, where he stayed until March 1937.
