Dancing On Broadway - Ernie Heckscher

 

It's All Right With Me

Dancing On Broadway
Ernie Heckscher and His Fairmont Orchestra
Arrangements by Van Alexander
Recording Engineer: Ami Hadani

From the back cover: Ernie is the fitting successor to the long line of fine San Francisco bandleaders, from Paul Whiteman to Paul Ash, from Anson Weeks to Tom Coaklet and Griff Williams, and he has improved on them all by moving ahead constantly with the musical times. He and his orchestra have played so many debutante parties and social events all over the country that he is sometimes called "The Meyer Davis of the West" – a title that is proving less and less apt. I'm sure Mr. Davis is flattered, as he should be, but it doesn't tell you the salient fact: that Ernie's band swings with the tempo of today and tonight. – Herb Caen, San Francisco Chronicle
