                          Artie Shaw (Arthur Jacob Arshawsky) 
                            (May 23, 1910 – December 30, 2004)

Shaw was a clarinetist, composer, and bandleader. He was also a author
who wrote both fiction and non-fiction short stories. Shaw had long been
suffering from diabetes.

Shaw led one of the most popular big bands in the late 1930s through
the early 1940s. Their signature song, a 1938 version of Cole Porter‘s
"Begin the Beguine", was a wildly successful single. He retired from the
music business in 1954.
