    Artie Shaw was an American jazz clarinetist, composer, and bandleader. He was also the author of both fiction and non-fiction writings. The real name if Artie Shaw was Arthur Jacob Arshawsky. He was born on 23rd May, 1910. Artie Shaw was one of the most enigmatic, daring and adventurous bandleaders of the swing-era. An intellectual, he hated public life and the music industry. Over the course of his short career he formed ten orchestras and disbanding most of them after only a few months. He also married eight times, his wives including movie stars Ava Gardner and Lana Turner. At his peak in the 1930s and ’40s, Shaw pulled in a five-figure salary per week and ranked with Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller as the bandleaders who made music swing. But he left the music world largely behind in the mid-’50s and spent much of the second half of his life devoted to writing and other pursuits. Artie Shaw died Thursday, December 30th, 2004. He was 94. He had been in declining health for some time and apparently died of natural causes. It does not somehow seem that Artie Shaw has an official website. Neverthless, any information regarding him and his recordings can be traced from the following links that are given below.
