Birography (Swing)
As the youngest son of arranger/big band leader Eddie Graf, Lenny Graf grew up surrounded by the sounds of Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Louis Jordan, Ella Fitzgerald and others. When other kids his age didn't know what the words jazz, big band, swing, bounce and jive meant, Lenny was going to school by day, crooning and playing his horn at night, loving it - and getting paid for it to boot. In those days, stepping out, with his "zoot suit and hat", before they became fashionable, Lenny could only wish that he could time-travel back to the forties. His musical moments to remember began with IN THE MOOD, and included songs like BLUEBERRY HILL, SING, SING, SING, T'AINT WHAT YOU DO, TUXEDO JUNCTION, TAKE THE A-TRAIN, EMRACEABLE YOU, MOONLIGHT SERENADE, SWEET GEORGIA BROWN, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, NIGHT AND DAY.

With images of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, dancing in his eyes, Lenny studied jazz saxophone and classical flute at York University, won the much coveted Grennick Award and is an accomplished sopranino saxophone player.

Over the twenty years that Lenny Graf has been singing and playing big band swing, he has written a series of fast faced, "swingable" tunes which he has now started to record as Lenny Graf and his Swing Orchestra.
