The Incomparable Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra. Duke Ellington, Paul Whiteman, Bennie Moten, McKinney's Cotton Pickers, Jean Goldkette. 2018 Classical Music Masters. Overview of American Songs (1920 - 1936).
American bandleader and orchestral director, born 28 March 1890 in Denver, Colorado, USA; died 29 December 1967 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA.
Album: The Victor Masters.
His fondness for coloristic suites ranges from Ferde Grofé's "Three Shades of Blue" to Victor Herbert's "Suite of Serenades" with different national inspirations. He was an avid sponsor of George Gershwin's orchestral impressionism, and it's heard here in both the sway of "South Sea Isles" and one of Whiteman's several recordings of "Rhapsody in Blue. This particular album contains some of Whiteman's largest hit recordings commencing with "Wang Wang Blues", his very first recording from 1920. However there are several early electrical recordings from 1925 and 1926 that I am not sure have ever been released in modern format prior to this album, thus making it unique: "Footloose","Charlstonette", and "St. Louis Blues".
