Jack Payne & His BBC Dance Orchestra - Dream Star of Araby, Fox Trot (Stanley & Lee), Columbia 1929 (UK) NOTE: For me, Jack Paynes band during its BBC days (late 1920s /beginning of the 1930s) was perhaps the best dance orchestra in Europe. Its so elegant yet strong sound with a prominent brass section and almost jazzy arangements can be competed only by Jack Hyltons. I could listen and listen to his recordings and always find some hiong new and fascinating. I hope youll enjoy it too.
