Jack Hylton's band first began making records in 1923. Hylton became a well respected pianist and bandleader and was in great demand, so much so, that he wound up having to provide bands for various locations simultaneously, all to be billed under his name. During the 1920's the Hylton band developed into one of the top British dance orchestra's of the period and had a very busy schedule. They toured America and performed throughout Europe continuing until the early 1940's when the orchestra disbanded due to many of its members being called upon for war service.
At this point Jack Hylton's career was already moving towards that of an impresario discovering new stars and managing radio, film, and theatrical productions from circuses to ballets. Under his famous name Hylton's productions dominated the London theaters.
