Joel Shaw in fact refers to the Gene Kardos and his orchestra. Tenor saxophonist Gene Kardos led a New York territory orchestra from 1931 to 1938. The band's early swing sound earned it a large following and made it a regular at the Roseland Ballroom. The group made its first recording in 1931. It also made several early recordings on the Crown label under the name of Kardos' pianist Joel Shaw. House vocalist Dick Robertson was featured on many of those early recordings (he also is on this one). Later recordings were made under Kardos' name. Vocalists were Chick Bullock, Pat Henry, Don Carrol, Cecil Bridge, Lee Russell, Jackie Gale, and Bea Wain. Arrangers were Bernie Green and Vic Schoen. This excellent record was made in 1933.
