I just learned that the Broadway Bell-Hops and Kit-Cat Band recordings

a "hot" saxophone solo. I am still looking for an mp3 of the Abe Lyman
PS "Sunday" was a popular tune in late 1926. It was recorded three
times by Sam Lanin (Oct 5, 28, Nov 8, 1926) and also by Don Vorhees
(Nov 29, 1926) and by Cliff Edwards (Oct 1926).
