Ralph Flanagan was one of the major figures of the Big Band Swing era. Born in Loraine, Ohio in 1919 he began piano lessons at the age of seventeen. He went on to learn to write arrangements and soon joined Sammy Kaye and his Swing and Sway Orchestra as pianist/arranger. In 1942 he joined the Merchant Marines and became a member of the Maritime Band. In 1946 he was discharged and became staff arranger for Perry Como as well as writing for Charlie Barnet, Tony Pastor, Boys Raeburn, etc. In 1946 he formed his own orchestra and began to issue records under his own name.
