About Tab Smith
Talmadge (Tab) Smith (January 11, 1909–August 17, 1971), was an American swing and rhythm and blues alto saxophonist. In the 1930s and 1940s he spent several years in the bands of Lucky Millinder and Count Basie, as well as spending long periods freelancing both as a player and as an arranger. After the Second World War he led his own groups, which concentrated on rhythm and blues as jazz turned from swing to bop. His biggest R & B hit was "Because of You," which reached number 1 on the R & B charts, and number 20 on the pop charts, in 1951.
