I Want To Be Happy
Accompanied by Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra
Billed on this Enoch Light Grand Award release as "The World's Greatest Jazz Violinist".
This is a fine album with a sound that seems ahead of it's time on a number of tracks. I'm not sure who was working with Whiteman at this time or if there were a few New York session men sitting in with his people. But the piano work and the guitar work are as "on fire" as Venuti's Fiddle.
Curiously, Whiteman's list of "major" recordings ends on his wiki page with a 1956 release.
Venuti's wiki page places him in "relative obscurity in the 1940s and 1950s." He was playing with Jack Statham at the Desert Inn Hotel in Las Vegas during this period.
