I am a big fan of Fred Astaire. I love his movies, his dancing of course, and his singing. He was a great American original and the world is a better place because he existed. Thankfully, we can visit his movies as often as we wish.
Fred Astaire also had a successful recording history. He had many bestselling hits. While many think he had a terrible singing voice, many more appreciate his talent. His jazz version of Night and Day is by far my favourite.
I have written two articles about Fred Astaire:
