Alex Bartha led Atlantic City's hottest band in the mid-1930s. Featuring famed trumpeter Ziggy Elman, the local group drew crowds that rivaled big name outfits. Though best remembered as the house band at the Steel Pier the orchestra toured regionally. Bartha faded into obscurity when Benny Goodman hired away Elman in 1936. This brilliant record (credited "Alex Bartha's Hotel Traymore Orchestra") was made in 1932. Personnel included Alex Bartha, dir; Philo Shreve and unknown t; Ziggy Elman, tb; Angie Marrendino, cl-as; Bert Nickerson, cl-as-bar, cl-as and cl-ts; Freddy Bowers, p, sb and d; Carl White, v.

A great swinging number - think I like this more than their "Oceans Of Love" - makes me want to get up and dance! Even with the popcorn and ticket tout it deserves 5*

Some good clips featuring "Ziggy" (from movies) can be found here & on YT. Hope they don't get "pulled" by the ownership police.

You guessed perfectly right Fred. Such a pity they hardly made records indeed, every single one is a gem.
