Excepting one number, â€œIâ€™m Telling The World That I Love You,â€ on Victor 21568, these selections constitute the entire recorded output of Horace Heidt and his Orchestra in the 1920s. The tunes appear here in catalogue order, which varies slightly from the actual recording dates.
It is not intended that one should think of this group as a jazz band, as is the case with Ted Weems, Blue Steele, Ray Miller, et al. However, their potential was there to such a degree that they rated a good mention in Brian Rustâ€™s â€œJazz Record Books,â€ Volume 1. The tempo, arrangements, and occasional hot solos make this recording a welcome addition to any collection.
Featured players include Warren Lewis, Jerry Browne, Paul Knox, Clarence Moore, David Phennig, Harold Plummer, Harold â€œDintyâ€ Moore, Lee Lykins, Charles Midgely, Charles Bradshaw, Art Thorsen and Lee Fleming.
