GUY B. WOOD  

(1911 - 2001)

Guy Wood
Composer, Band Leader, Saxophonist

Guy B. Wood came from England in the 1930’s to the United States where he first worked in production at Hollywood studios and later led a dance band in New York, playing saxophone. His output of some dozen songs, for which he either wrote music or lyrics, contains several hits. “My One and Only Love” (1953) written with Robert Mellin and first recorded by Frank Sinatra, has become a jazz standard. “Shoo-Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy,” a folk tune for which Wood wrote lyrics with Sammy Gallop, became a popular novelty tune recorded by artists as diverse as Dinah Shore and June Christy with the Stan Kenton band. “Till Then,” written in collaboration with Sol M. Marcus and Eddie Seiler, enjoyed several decades of success in different incarnations—as a hit for the Mills Brothers in 1944, for the Hilltoppers a decade later, and for the Classics in 1963. Wood also wrote music for the popular children’s program, Captain Kangaroo.
