Each month our panel of experts picks a different National Jukebox selection to highlight. This month’s selection:
"Venetian Moon" performed by the All Star Trio, recorded January 14, 1920 (Victor 18651).
The Victor Talking Machine Company ushered in the 1920s with an instrumental version of this love-themed ditty, complete with syncopated rejoinders, played by the All Star Trio.
The trio consisted of pianist Victor Arden, along with saxophonist Wheeler Wadsworth, and wizard xylophonist George Hamilton Green, whose brilliantly recorded instrument is brought into even greater relief by the not-so-tender mooing of Wadsworth’s sax.
