From American Bands Database:

LOU GOLD(1894 -1950) né: Lewis Milton Goldwasser
He was most active in the New York City area as a composer, pianist and leader during the mid-1920s and early 1930s. It was an all-White band active mostly in studio recordings, and using several pseudonyms for the different labels. At the time, there were (in New York city) a group of men working as musical directors for the various record labels. Among them were Sam and Lester Lanin, Nathan Glantz, and Adrian Schubert. These men were well known to each other and were often hired by one another to lead studio recordings (see the Glantz entry above) often using the very same musicians. Lou was one of that group of leaders. Many of the very same sidemen who had formerly played with Glantz, the Lanins, and Schubert in the studios made up the Gold Orchestra. Here's the Lou Gold orchestra recording for the Harmony Label in 1928 playing "I Can't Give You Anything But Love Baby" from the Lew Leslie 'Blackbirds of 1928' revue. (Other song hits from that show include "Doin' The New Low Down", "Digga Digga Do", and "I Must Have That Man".)
Over the years, his birthname of Lewis Milton Goldwasser metamorphosed first into Lew Gold, then Lou Gold, and finally into Louis M. Gould. (The name that appears on his tombstone.) In 1932, he and his wife Doris A. Mabel (Reynolds) Gould, relocated to Miami, Florida, where he played at the Triton Hotel on Miami Beach for seven years. Lou died in 1950. During his life, he had worked with such men as Benny Goodman, Vincent Lopez, Tommy Dorsey, Abe Lyman, and many others.
