Unfortunately my previous upload by the Casa Loma Orchestra was rejected, hence I try this catchy song. Howard Lanin (1897-1991) was the third most prominent brother in a family of bandleaders. Sam and Lester were the two most well known of the brothers. Sam became a very famous director of the 20s and early 30s who left us a huge amount of recordings, and Lester was a popular dance band leader from the 30s through the 90s. Howard entered music professionally in 1909 as a drummer in the orchestra at the Crystal Palace movie theater. He organized his first dance band of his own at 17 and spent the next 72 years leading bands. Although he often performed in New York and other East Coast cities as far south as Florida, he remained based in Philadelphia for most of his career. Lanin was called, "The King of Society Music." He led the Howard Lanin Orchestra, a group that performed show tunes, waltzes and sweet jazz. He recorded with various groups of his own, including the Benjamin Franklin Hotel Orchestra and played dances, industrial shows, and conventions for decades. The orchestras of the Lanin brothers gave a start to Red Nichols, Artie Shaw, The Dorsey Brothers and other jazz musicians. This great record was made in 1927. Vocal by Frank Harris, actually a pseudonym for Irving Kaufman (né Isidore Kaufman, 1890-1976), who was a prolific early twentieth century singer, recording artist and Vaudeville performer. The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, he was a member of The Kaufman Brothers, along with his brothers Phillip and Jack. Kaufman began recording in 1914, and recorded for Victor, Columbia, Vocalion, Gennett, Edison, Harmony, as well as all of the dime labels (Banner, Perfect, etc.). Early in his career, when recording for Edison and Victor, he recorded under his own name, but he also used a number of (non-Jewish-sounding) aliases. Sometimes, as in the case of several of his 1927 "Broadway Bell-Hops" vocals, he was merely credited as "Vocal Chorus". He was often credited as "vocal refrain by George Beaver" on the dime store labels. Kaufman was a singer in the vaudeville style; certainly not considered a jazz singer, he nonetheless sang on recordings accompanied by some of the foremost jazz figures of the 1920s, including Leon "Bix" Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, The Dorsey Brothers, Red Nichols, Miff Mole, and Eddie Lang. (His voice recorded well - both acoustically and electrically - and was one of the most prolific singers during the 1920s). Kaufman retired after a heart attack in 1949, and made no further commercial recordings until 1974, when a 2-LP set titled Reminisce With Irving Kaufman was released. It consisted mostly of transcriptions of his old recordings, but included several new cuts of Kaufman singing, accompanied by his second wife, Belle Brooks (1904–93). Upon retirement he lived in Palm Springs, California.
