By now most people know the story of Paul Whiteman, born in Denver in 1890 who began his working life as a cabdriver, but had studied violin in his younger days and before long was offered the position of first violin in the Denver Symphony Orchestra - only getting into dance music to spite someone who he’d had a disagreement with earlier. He was referred to as the man who made a lady out of jazz. Well it may have been excellent dance music, but hardly jazz. What ever anyone says, it has stood the test of time and all of the music here was not recorded until the 1950s. Hi-fi had arrived and everyone wanted to recreate their successes in the new sensational sound. Whiteman and Reser dug out their old scores and put together the same instrumentations as the originals. Harry Reser was a very seasoned banjo player considered the best by fellow musicians, but his re-activated sound still shows how good Whiteman was-right up to the end. And speaking of the end we had just enough time in hand to brief you what was probably Whitemans best waxing of the fabulous rhapsody in blue which Gershwin created for him back in 1924.
