American jazz and pop pianist Page Cavanaugh has passed away, aged 86.

The vocalist, who began creating music with his fingers at the age of nine, died on December 26 following kidney failure.

While serving in the military during World War II, Cavanaugh met guitarist Al Viola and bassist Lloyd Pratt, with whom he formed a trio.

The Page Cavanaugh Trio rose to fame in the 1940s on film and in Frank Sinatra's radio show, reports Contactmusic.

The band scored a number of hits in the late 1940s, including "The Three Bears", "Walkin" My Baby Back Home", and "All of Me".

The trio even appeared in the films 'A Song Is Born', 'Big City', 'Lullaby of Broadway' (with Doris Day) and 'Romance on the High Seas.'
