Duke Ellington - mid 20th Century
from Duke Ellington: Music is my Mistress, page 220:
Marie Ellington was so pretty that it took a while for audiences to realize that she was presented for the purpose of singing rather than just to be looked at! Then, when they became aware of her lovely, sultry voice, they simply surrendered.
