A talented veteran pianist/vocalist, Page Cavanaugh and his trio (with guitarist Al Viola and bassist Lloyd Pratt) were quite popular during the latter half of the 1940s. Cavanaugh started taking piano lessons when he was nine. He picked up early experience playing with the Ernie Williamson band (1938-1939). While in the military, he first met up with Viola and Pratt. After their discharge, the trio's swinging playing (inspired by the Nat King Cole Trio), plus their whispered vocals, made them a hit during the mid- to late '40s; among their best-sellers were "The Three Bears," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home," and "All of Me." The group appeared in several movies including A Song Is Born and Romance on the High Seas. Cavanaugh worked steadily in the Los Angeles area for five decades, heading a septet (the Page 7) in the early '60s, and performing regularly with his trio (which once again includes Al Viola) beginning in the late '80s. His earlier RCA dates are difficult to find, but he recorded in 1989 for Star Line.
