Fred Rich and His Orchestra -- Japanese Sandman (Raymond B. Egan /Richard A. Whiting), 1932

Here's another recording from 1932 radio program „Fred's Friendly Five" sponsored by the Jarman Shoe Company, Nashville, Tennessee. It consisted of 26 sessions, four titles each. I already uploaded three titles from among those historical recordings, which were completed at two sessions: from Sept 1931 to May 1932.

Fred RICH - born in Warsaw, Poland, 1893 -- Polish-Jewish-American pianist and bandleader. Rich studied music in Warsaw Conservatory. In 1920 he emigrated to USA, where he worked unpermanently as a pianist. In 1922 his musical talent merited him the position of conductor and arranger of one of the best New York city hotel orchestras, the Astor. In 1925-27 he toured Europe and in 1928 he became the first American orchestra leader to play for the king of England, George V. His association with the Astor ended in 1928, when he joined the CBS as music director, where he remained until 1938. In this period he employed the finest musicians for hist broadcasts and recordings of his film shorts. In 1942 he moved to California and joined United Artists. He was a musical director of „Stage Door canteen", in 1943 he scored „Jack London" and two years later -- „A Walk In The Sun". Suffering partial paralysis in 1945, he continued to freelance in the studios, until his death in Beverly Hills, LA, in 956.
