Ziggy Elman & His Orchestra - Bluebird 10741 (1939)

Starting out years ago as a Big Band collector, I became a little bit familiar with the sidemen in some of the most popular groups. I always liked finding 78s by some of these sidemen as leaders of their own groups but maybe weren't as well known or had relatively small output compared to their earlier sidemen days.

Here's one from Harry Finkelman...better known as Ziggy Elman...who is mostly known for his trumpet playing in the Benny Goodman Orchestra and even more so for his composition And The Angels Sing...which became a #1 hit for Benny Goodman in 1939.

Ziggy Elman t / Toots Mondello, Noni Bernardi as / Jerry Jerome, Arthur Rollini ts / Milt Raskin p / Ben heller g / Artie Bernstein sb / Nick Fatool d.

Recorded in New York on November 27 (B) & December 26, 1939 (A).
