Love Letters In Latin - Buddy Milton Quartet

Orchids In The Moonlight
Love Letters In Latin
Buddy Milton Quartet
Vocalion VL 3661

Obscure budget Latin recording featuring an equally obscure artist. In 1947 Milton was playing the Terrace Room, Hotel Statler in Detroit.

In 1950 the quartet was playing the Jean Goldkette's Fantasia formerly the Latin Quarter, a theater in Detroit that was having fanancial issues. The American Guild of Variety Artists and The American Federation of Musicians had to step in and "protect" Milton who was playing a low-budget ice show there.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
