In 1936, Ziggy Elman joined the Benny Goodman orchestra as a
trumpet player. His 1939 composition And
the Angels Sing, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, (originally recorded in
December 1938 by his own band as an instrumental, Frailach In Swing) became the number one song in the nation.
In 1956, he was asked to recreate his famous frailach solo
along with the original vocalist Martha Tilton for the movie, The Benny Goodman
Story, but was unable to, his technique having since withered away. Elman
appeared performing it in the film, but another trumpeter, Manny Klein, played
the solo on the soundtrack. This song is arguably his longest-lasting musical
legacy, since it has appeared in films up to 1997 and was inducted into the
Grammy Hall of Fame in 1987.

Rust has both sides listed as by the "Hot Seven" but the label here is printed as "Hot Five" on Weary Blues. Chronological Classics' and Columbia/Legacy's liner notes both reinforce Rust's publication.

George Alexander was the nom du disque of baritone Clifford
Alexander Wiley (1867–1913), a recitalist who began recording for Zonophone
Records in 1902. He recorded copiously for the Columbia
and Zonophone record companies in addition to recording a handful of titles for
the Victor Talking Machine Company. His robust sonority and precise diction
made him a natural for the acoustical recording process.
The Battle Hymn of the Republic is a
hymn by American writer Julia Ward Howe using the music from the song
"John Brown's Body". Howe's more famous lyrics were written in
November 1861 and first published in The Atlantic Monthly in February 1862. The
song links the judgment of the wicked at the end of time (New Testament) with
the American Civil War. Since that time it has become an extremely popular and
well-known American patriotic song.
