Denny led a high society dance band in the '30s and '40s. The group was known variously as the Jack Denny Orchestra, Jack Denny and His Orchestra and the Jack Denny Studio Orchestra. The band's sound was at times especially unique due to the lack of a brass section, an effect that may have gone over the heads or under the feet of dancers at venues such as Montreal's Mount Royal Hotel and later at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City, where he held contracts. This wonderful record was made in 1929. The vocal is by Harold 'Scrappy' Lambert.

Thank you so much, Larry, for your comprehensive comment and utterly warm reception of my uploads, especially those of the incredibly refined Jack Denny Orchestra. It may be less commercial than that by other leaders, but his velvety, smooth strings arrangements without brass are unique. It is such a delight to see this music from many decades ago is still appreciated by others as much as it is by myself. Yours is the kind of heartfelt comments that make it all so worth while sharing :-)

If you lived here in Placerville, I would not only personally thank you and shake your hand, but I'd take you to dinner for the totality of your musical discernment and especially for including this late May 1929 side by Jack Denny, that Rust lists as recorded in New York. I appreciate Denny's imagination in playing music that was individually expressive but not always as commercial as that from more prominent front men. Some of the matrix numbers on his 78s reflect many re-takes . . . not necessarily because someone sneezed, or the A & R man objected, but probably a nuance that was missed on the score, or to satisfy Denny's ear, after play-back. This song is a real venture into that wonderful lost horizon of "between-the-wars-music" that was such a blessing. I especially like Denny's next to the last chorus where he modulates up to B-flat with the violin lead and syncopation by the rhythm section. You don't need illicit drugs for an "upper" with music like that! May all that you have contributed to music here on dailymotion continue to edify those who seek, long after we have both departed.

Thanks a lot, Jack! I fully agree the orchestral sound without brass section confines a special refinement to the arrangements.
