About the album

From the early 1920s into the ‘30s Ben Bernie lead one of America’s best and most popular dance bands.

He recorded prolifically first for Vocalion and then for Brunswick and quite a large proportion of his output was of considerable jazz interest, thanks largely to the presence in the band of two excellent soloists, alto sax Jack Pettis and trumpeter Bill “Hot Hawaiian” Moore. Both are heavily featured in our 2cd compilation of Bernie’s most interesting hot recordings.

Amongst the hottest of all the tracks is the unlikely sounding “When Polly Walks Through The Hollyhocks In The Moonlight” and we bring you both the vocal and non-vocal takes.
There are several more alternate takes here and this set is essential listening for any hot dance band enthusiast.
