This CD is seventy two minutes of foot tapping, “Hot Dance” tunes made during the years 1926 to 1935. The music is upbeat and jazzy and it?s sure to get you dancing. Many of the recordings re-issued here have never been released on LP or CD before. While some of the band names may not be familiar, many of the musicians and arrangers are. Names such as Bix Biederbecke, Ted Weems, Jimmy Dorsey, Mal Hallett, Phil Baxter and others represent the finest musicians and arrangers of the period. This CD release, unlike previous Diamond Cut Production’s releases is not based on the Edison lateral collection, but on the private collections of Bill Hebden and John R. T. Davies.
