B.A. Rolfe & His
Palais D'Or Orchestra
Flop in Film
Smash on Record
This side was recorded in New York City on May 14th 1928 featuring Benjamin Rolfe trumpet & director.
*"Deep Hollow" was composed by Mickey Guy and Ken Macomber.
After leaving the film business around 1920 Benjamin A. Rolfe quickly reestablished himself as a performing soloist, music instructor and vaudeville producer. He worked with Vincent Lopez in 1924 and 1925. Inspired by Paul Whiteman, by 1926 he had assembled his own New York City dance orchestra to perform at a Broadway cabaret called the Palais D'Or. Soon billed as "B.A. Rolfe (Trumpet Virtuoso) and his Palais D'Or Orchestra," by 1928 he was performing on radio and recording as "B.A. Rolfe and his Lucky Strike Orchestra" for Edison.
