Signorelli had a light sophisticated sound, that worked well with the so called “Chamber Jazz” crowd like Lang and Venuti that played in New York of the late 1920s. This little movement in the words of Paul Whiteman, ” tried to make a lady out of Jazz.”
In 1936 some of the original members of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band tried to stage a comeback by reviving the band, and Signorelli was among them. In 1938 he joined the Paul Whiteman Orchestra. He continued to play music in New York in the 1940s and 1950s.
