Abe Lyman (1897-1957) was a popular bandleader from the 1920s to the 1940s. He made recordings, appeared in films and provided the music for numerous radio shows. Abe learned to play the drums when he was young, and at the age of 14 he had a job as a drummer in a Chicago café. Soon after that, when Abe’s nine-piece band first played at the Sunset in LA, it was a success, but the club closed. For an engagement at the Cocoanut Grove in The Ambassador Hotel on April 1, 1922, Abe added a violinist and saxophonist. The Lyman Orchestra toured Europe in 1929, appearing at the Kit Cat Club and the Palladium in London and at the Moulin Rouge and the Perroquet in Paris. Abe Lyman and his orchestra were featured in a number of early talkies. During the 1930s, the Lyman Orchestra was heard regularly on such shows as Accordiana and Waltz Time. When Lyman was 50 years old, he left the music industry and died at the age of 60. Whereas his early recordings often were particularly hot, this is a later one, adapted to the smoother style of the 30's, more particularly 1930.

Girls changed their ways a lot from the 1890s to the 1920s. It must have been shocking to those that saw it all happen!
