Although largely forgotten today, Bert Lown, who occasionally played violin, led a series of superior jazz-oriented dance band sides during 1929-33. He was one of the composers of the standard "Bye Bye Blues." As a violinist Lown worked for a time in the 1920's as a sideman, including in 1925 with cornetist Fred Hamm's band. During 1930-31, Lown's band was employed regularly at the Biltmore Hotel in New York, frequently broadcasting on the radio. During this period Lown also composed "You're The One I Care For" and "Tired." His orchestra only recorded two sessions apiece in 1932 and 1933 and by the mid-30's Lown was no longer leading a band, instead booking and managing orchestras before definitlvely leaving the music business. In later years, Lown held executive positions and was involved in CBS-TV from 1951 until his death in 1962. This wonderful recording is an excellent example of Lown's sophisticated arrangements, Recording was made in 1932. Exquisite vocal by Elmer Feldkamp.

Bostonblakie, it was the unrivaled golden age of songwriting; I wonder if such era will ever come back.
