Jack Fulton

Jack Fulton was a composer, a trombonist, and the vocalist who introduced “Body and Soul” in 1930 and “How Deep Is the Ocean? (How High Is the Sky?)” in 1932, both with Paul Whiteman’s Orchestra. Between 1926 and 1934 he recorded dozens of vocals with Whiteman including “Sweet Sue,” “You Took Advantage of Me,” and “Lover”.

He was also part of a trio with Charles Gaylord and Austin Young that recorded “Makin’ Whoopee” with Whiteman and, in various vocal configurations, provided backup for Bing Crosby on numbers such as “Get Out and Get Under the Moon” and “My Blue Heaven”.

Fulton also played trombone behind Bix Beiderbecke at Whiteman’s Carnegie Hall concert in 1928 and appears on several recordings such as Hoagy Carmichael’s Stardust Melodies and the collection, Drop Me Off in Harlem.

Of some 100 compositions, his success, with Moe Jaffe and Nat Bonx, turned out to be an adaptation of Anton Rubenstein’s “Romance,” entitled “If You Are But a Dream” (1942). It was recorded by Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Sonny Stitt, Sarah Vaughan, and Brook Benton among others.
