Take Two Records presents a second album dedicated to the music of pianist and bandleader Eddy Duchin (1910-1951). Most of the vocals are by Lew Sherwood, with additional appearances by Jerry Cooper, Buddy Clark and the DeMarco Sisters. During the mid-'30s, many dance bands spiced up their act with rhythms and repertoire gleaned from Latin America; Duchin tapped into this trend with "La Cumparsita" -- one of his very few instrumental recordings from this period -- and "Dust on the Moon," described as a "Rumba Fox Trot." All of the other selections included here, like most of the popular recordings issued on 78 rpm records during the '30s, were tagged with the all-purpose categorical designation of "Fox Trot." The songs themselves, mostly associated with movies and stage musicals, are emblematic of the decade preceding the Second World War. It's not surprising that Duchin's tragically brief life story was made into a motion picture in 1956. He began leading his own Central Park Casino Orchestra in 1931, and married wealthy socialite Marjorie Oelrichs three years later, causing her to "lose her social standing" as Duchin was both a Jew and a musician. In early August 1937, Marjorie died of post-natal complications less than a week after the birth of their son Peter. Eddy in turn would succumb to leukemia on February 9, 1951. Deprived of a mother from the outset and orphaned while still a boy, Peter Duchin would grow up to become a successful pianist, producer and bandleader. ~ arwulf arwulf
