Feat. Sonny Dunham


Recorded in New York City in 1929 by Paul Tremaine's "Aristocrats" featuring Sonny Dunham trumpet & vocals.

*"Four-Four Rhythm" was composed by Paul Tremaine. Ironically despite it's title the song is in 2/4 time.

This popular dance orchestra was led by Paul Tremaine from the 1920s until the 1940s. By the early '30s the orchestra had taken residency at Yoeng's Chinese-American Restaurant on Broadway in New York.

Brockton, Massachusetts native Elmer 'Sonny' Dunham born on November 16th 1914 started playing trombone at age seven and began playing with local bands by the time he was thirteen. After moving to New York in 1928 and spending a six month period with the "Ben Bernie Orchestra" he joined Paul Tremaine's band where he made the transition to trumpet.
