Charley Dornberger played tenor sax in Paul Whiteman's band during the historic days at the Alexandria Hotel in Los Angeles in 1920 when Ferde Grofe began to write the first arrangements for a jazz dance band. Dornberger stayed with the band during the early New York triumphs: the winters at Paul Salvin's Palais Royal (probably the most successful cabaret ever run by a Harvard man), the recording "Whispering" and other early Victor hits, and the 1923 "Follies" engagement. Dornberger then left to form his own band as, later on, other Whiteman sidemen did -- Henry Busse, Grofe, Ross Gorman, Matty Malneck and Lennie Hayton among them.
