Record of the Month

from The National Jukebox

Each month our panel of experts picks a different National Jukebox selection to highlight.

This month’s selection:

"The Nightingale," performed by Darius Lyons, recorded July 8, 1909.

During Darius Lyons short life (1878-1911), he performed with Victor Herbert’s Orchestra and the bands of John Philip Sousa and Arthur Pryor. He was also a house musician for the Victor Talking Machine Company, where he recorded around 70 solos under his own name, as well as featured performer with various ensembles. Here he mirthfully performs Wilhelm Popp’s “The Nightingale.”
