They called Paul Whiteman “The King Of Jazz," and he was said to have made “a lady” out of jazz. In fact, neither of these sobriquets is strictly true. Whiteman, the bulky violin-playing leader of the world's most famous dance band throughout the twenties, trained as a violinist and actually played in the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra before extending his scope to cover dance music after the end of WW 1. Tracks (1920-27) include "Wang-Wang Blues," "On The 'Gin 'Gin 'Ginny Shore," "Stumbling," "Hot Lips," "I'll Build A Stairway To Paradise," "Everything Is K.O. In K.Y.," "If I Can't Have The Sweetie I Want," "Shake Your Feet," "Steppin' Out," "Lazy," "Charleston," "Ukulele Lady," "Steppin' In Society" and others.
