Because the piano featured so prominently in many of Freddy Martin's recordings, it was often thought he was the soloist, in fact, his chosen instrument was the tenor sax and it was the selling of musical instruments, mainly the saxophone family, that led him to a career as a professional musician. He was born on 9th December 1909 in Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up in a Springfield, Ohio, orphanage following the death of his parents when he was only four. At the age of 16, he returned to Cleveland and lived with relatives while attending high school. To help pay for his keep, he sold musical instruments in his spare time, at the same time learning to play the tenor saxophone. After graduation he played with several bands before forming his own group in 1931. His first engagement at the Bossert Hotel in New York lasted until 1934 and was followed by several other stints at hotels in the Manhattan area. Jasmine have now re-issued this great hit maker from yesteryear. Amongst several hallmarks of the orchestra were popular arrangements of classical tunes, such as piano concertos by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, not to mention Boogie Woogie versions of Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance" and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight Of The Bumble Bee" ("Bumble Boogie"). 22 original tracks are featured here, almost 70 minutes playing time.
