Artists: The pseudonym
‘Ariel Dance Orchestra' is used frequently to represent a number of early
jazz artists and bands, including Frank Trumbaurer's Turn on the Heat and
Sunny Side Up (which were also released on Parlophone and Okeh), and Sam
Lanin's Orchestra on Susianna with Bing Crosby on vocal; the record backed
by Fred Hall's Sugar Babies' I Faw Down an' Go ‘Boom!. The name Norman,
sometimes Normand, was actually Seger Ellis singing with Eddie Land and
the Dorsey Brothers, and on the record To Be in Love and S'possin, the
trumpet is that of Louis Armstrong. As for the English bands, the ‘Ariel
Dance Orchestra' could mean Nat Gonella's Orchestra or Victor Silvester's
Ballroom Orchestra. And for further confusion (or disguise), the Dorsey
Brother's Concert Orchestra under the dierction of Eugene Ormandy (no less),
became the Ariel Symphony Orchestra.
