Paul Whiteman (Denver 1890, Doylestown 1967) was the leader of one of the most beloved bands in the history of American popular music. He formed his first dance orchestra in 1918 while living in San Francisco, then settled in New York in 1920. In the same year he recorded “Whispering” and “Japanese Sandman”, selling over one million copies each. Though his lush and sweet style was very influential and widely imitated, he always loved featuring first-class jazz musicians (notably great horn players like Bix Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, Eddie Lang, Joe Venuti and Jack Teagarden) on his recordings. In the mid-late twenties the Whiteman Orchestra featured, among others, a vocal trio called “The Rhythm Boys”: Harry Barris, Al Rynker (Mildred Bailey’s brother) and the then-unknown Bing Crosby. In 1924 Whiteman commissioned George Gershwin to write “Rhapsody in Blue”, which was premiered in a now legendary concert at the Aeolian Hall in New York, with the composer himself as featured pianist. That was the origin of the so-called “Symphonic Jazz” style. Since this collection is chiefly devoted to Paul Whiteman’s career as a dance band leader, but we couldn’t possibly omit the “Rhapsody”, we have decided to put it at the end of the compilation, completely out of chronological order.
