The great orchestra featured in this post was an Edison house band, led by Melville Morris. It has nothing to do with its contemporary, homonym band led by Al Starita, recording for Columbia. Extremely little, or should I say nothing, is known about the Edison band. Even regarding leader Melville neither biographical data nor pictures are available. This is strange, since he knew a certain success as a composer (his best known song might be the Kangaroo Hop). I couldn't identify any personnel, I only found the recording year (1929). This composition contains several quotations of "Morning Mood" from Edvard Grieg's first Peer Gynt Suite.

Genia, I guess Grieg wouldn't exactly have expected his famous melody to be jazzed up like this. So glad you enjoyed this song!

Patrick, How clever to incorporate snippets from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite. I love this delightful orchestration. It is charming and upbeat and unique. Very very Nice.

Could be the ultimate 1920s musical pseudonym, "anonymous." ;-)
