Frankie Trumbauer & His Orchestra was one of the most original and modern jazz bands of the 1920s and early 1930s. They were never that successful financially, which led Trumbauer to join other bands to make a buck. Trumbauer's solo on Trumbology is one of the most influential saxophone parts in the history of Jazz.
Some of Bix Beiderbecke's best recordings were with the Trumbauer orchestra. Bix and Tram were at the peak of their careers on songs like Singin' The Blues and Riverboat Shuffle. Many of the finest White Jazz artists of the 1920s like Pee Wee Russell, Jack Teagarden, Venuti and Lang played with the band. Eddie Lang in particular contributed some wonderful guitar parts.
