Recorded in New York City on October 30th 1924 with Louis Armstrong, Elmer Chambers, and Howard Scott trumpets, Charlie Green trombone, Buster Baily clarinet, Coleman Hawkins tenor sax, Don Redman alto sax, Fletcher Henderson piano, Charlie Dixon banjo, Ralph Escuderos tuba, and Kaiser Marshall drums.
Like the wheels of a well oiled machine the Henderson band were at the peak of their abilities in the Fall of '24 converging around their newest member Louis Armstrong. At this point Henderson and the orchestra still had a long way to go developmentally, but it was only after the addition of Armstrong that their sound began to change. In coming years at their zenith "Fletcher Henderson & His Orchestra" will make New York City a jazz capital in it's own right and set out to conquer the era of "Swing".
