Well this is kinda' sad. The caption from page 100 of the book "New York City Jazz" says Ann Hathaway would be remembered as a great singer of the late 1940s. But nowadays she's hardly remembered at all!
I wasn't able to find an obituary for my Ann Hathaway, which either means she's faded completely into obscurity and her body is lying someplace uncollected and alone, or maybe she's still alive! Ann, are you still with us? Please leave a comment here to let me know you're still alive and, at age 102 or whatever, you somehow managed to use the internet to Google yourself and find this blog post instead of just millions of these.
By employing some advanced Ann Hathaway filtering tactics, I managed to come up with some neat photos of the singer cavorting in Washington Square and performing at Cafe Society in New York in 1947. The extensive LP liner notes about Ms. Hathaway and bandleader Andre Brummer from this (I think) 1956 release are included below.
