Re: [RedHotJazz] Is it Benny Goodman?
- At the time of these recordings Benny Goodman was a much sought after sidemanand he was constantly busy with work for Red Nichols, Ted Lewis, Ben Pollack and Ben Selvin among others. There was also some fairly lucrative work recording sound tracks for cartoon films. His name may not have been in lights this early but among those who mattered he was always in demand.

Subject: [RedHotJazz] Is it Benny Goodman?
I'm listening to a recording by Annette Hanshaw of "I Don't Know Why (I Just Do).The music is by Fred E. Ahlert and the lyrics are by RoyTurk. The record I'm looking at was recorded on 9/22/31 on the Harmony Records label and the number is 1376-H.
Elsewhere, I've read that Lloyd Keatin and his Orchestra made the first recording, but I don't know abut this particular record. Some say it's Benny Goodman. If so, I'm wondering why his name is not shown on the label. Surely, there was never a time when Benny Goodman was not a much bigger star than Annette Hanshaw.
