Unforgettable is a 1961 LP record by blues, R&B and jazz singer Dinah Washington, released on the Mercury Records label, and reissued as a compilation album in 1991. The record shows the singer mostly in a pop star role instead of her traditional jazz & blues style. Allmusic reviews the compilation album as saying: "This CD (which has the original LP program of 12 songs joined by six others) finds Washington singing brief (mostly under three-minute) versions of standards in hopes of gaining another hit.". The single "Unforgettable", released in 1959, peaked at #10 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1961, and Dinah's recording of the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2001.

Walter "Little Man" Buchanan, Jr. (born 1915) is a jazz bassist known for his work in the late 1940s-early 1950s as a member of various line-ups led by saxophonist Arnett Cobb. In April 1944 he was playing in a band led by Jesse Miller at Joe's Deluxe Club, in Chicago, with Albert Atkinson (sax), Ike Day, Argonne Thornton (piano), and Kermit Scott. In January 12, 1949 he recorded with Milt Larkin's band for Savoy Records together with Buck Clayton, Hal Singer, George Rhodes on piano, and Joe Harris on drums. In February 1949 he recorded again for Savoy, as a member of the Hal Singer Sextet, comprising Tate Houston, Buchanan, Butch Ballard, George Rhodes, Chippy Outcalt and Willie Moore, and on the same session, the same line-up recorded another track backing Chicago Davis. An August 1949 issue of Down Beat features a photograph by William P. Gottlieb showing Buchanan onstage with Cobb at the Apollo Theater, New York.
