Jack Norworth

Jack Norworth (1879–1959) was a well-known song-and-dance man who was active in vaudeville and on the Broadway stage during the early years of the twentieth century. His most famous stage appearances were made with his then-wife, Nora Bayes, with whom he composed the smash-hit song "Shine On, Harvest Moon." Norworth recorded for Victor both as a soloist and in duet with Bayes. His voice was a light, high tenor that sharply contrasted with Bayes's low, throaty contralto. Norworth also recorded for Pathé and the British arm of Columbia. He is also remembered as the lyricist for another all-time hit, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."
