The Captivators (Direction Of Red Nichols) - Brunswick 4321 (1929)

Trying to clear my head, I looked around the garage a bit and saw a box of records that I was sure I had recently combed through. Giving it a nudge to get it off the shelf, I saw my handwriting on the side saying "Hot Sides."

I put it on the table to start flipping through and realized I hadn't seen the contents since at least 2007 (judging from the dates on the sleeves that I mark when I clean them).

It's like an early Christmas.

Ben Bernie & His Hotel Roosevelt Orchestra - Brunswick 3716 (1927)

From wikipedia…

Ben Bernie (May 30, 1891 – October 23, 1943), born Bernard Anzelevitz, was an American jazz violinist and radio personality, often introduced as The Old Maestro. He was noted for his showmanship and memorable bits of snappy dialogue.

Bernie was born in Bayonne, New Jersey. By the age of 15 he was teaching violin, but this experience apparently diminished his interest in the violin for a time. He returned to music doing vaudeville, appearing with Phil Baker as Baker and Bernie, but he met with little success until 1922 when he joined his first orchestra. Later, he had his own band, "The Lads," seen in the early DeForest Phonofilm sound short, Ben Bernie and All the Lads (1924–1925), featuring pianist Oscar Levant. He toured with Maurice Chevalier and also toured in Europe.

Bernie's orchestra recorded throughout the 1920s and 1930s; Vocalion (1922–1925), Brunswick (1925–1933), Columbia (1933), Decca (1936), and ARC (Vocalion and OKeh) (1939–1940). In 1925 Ben Bernie and his orchestra did the first recording of Sweet Georgia Brown. Bernie was the co-composer of this jazz standard, which became the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters. (His Vocalion and Brunswick records were always listed as Ben Bernie and His Orchestra; only his Columbia records used the moniker "Ben Bernie and All The Lads".)
