About Shep Fields
He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and his mother's maiden name was Sowalski. He played the clarinet and tenor sax in bands during college. By 1933 he led a band that played at Grossinger's Catskill Resort Hotel. In 1936 he was booked at Chicago's Palmer House, and the concert was broadcast on radio. A contest was held in Chicago for fans to suggest a new name for his band. The word "rippling" was suggested in more than one entry, and Fields came up with "Rippling Rhythm"
