    Thank you for your valuable input and remarks, Grzegorz... and still I am wondering why it seems to be unattainable for present-day ensembles to 'catch' that smooth, moody and at the same time energetic vibe. Today everything seems to be more strict although there is no reason for playing that way.

    Patrick, certainly so! I just listened to your upload wioth Ed Lloyd's "This Is No Dream" and it's exactly like you write: smooth, classy and metronomically perfect -yet, with that "something", a discreet and unique tone of the Roarin Twenties' bravura,blended with meelancholy, a "hidden note" echoing deep beneath the surface of instrumantalisation - something absolutely impossible to imitate by today's bands doing the shows like "let the good ole times roll"

    On the other hand, in a strange way this melody sounded very familiar to me, and finally I found what it resembles to: "This Is No Dream (see my uploads http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xa8ufb_ed-lloyd-his-orchestra-this-is-no-d_music or http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xok3zt_victor-arden-phil-ohman-their-orchestra-this-is-no-dream_music). I wonder if I am actually dreaming?

    I've never heard this Goldkette performance and it is exquisite! I love the arrangement and also, as been pointed out before in this thread, how it is remarkably balanced and stylish, both energetic and smooth. This is a perfect tune to show what it is to play not too metronomically, something I quite often find to be too prominent in present-day orchestras playing in the vintage style.

    Gigi, thank you :-))
    Jack, Goldkette as bandleader, in my opinion, used to lead the orchestra into a rather hot and more jazzy style, while this guy - as you said it - keeps excellent tempo, and presents very professional kind of directing, which to me, is, however, somewhat cool.
    Genia, that photo was found by me somewhere, in an immense space of the web, and unfortunately, no author was mentioned (I usually note such things). So - it must be forever to us an anonymous jewel, without any head or neck it could decorate.
