One of the first artists to appear on the Aristocrat label was Sherman Hayes, who led an orchestra in the Chicago area. Hayes began his musical career in 1939 with the Del Courtney Orchestra. He sang and played tenor saxophone. The orchestra’s performances at the Black Hawk Restaurant in Chicago were broadcast on radio station WGN. The Aristocrat sessions were in early 1947 and were the first sessions for the label. Sherman Hayes died in 1969.
