The Unknown Nordskog 3040-Burtnett and Miller Famous Orchestra


I recently acquired a west coast recording on the rare Nordskog label, performed by the Burtnett and Miller Orchestra. The Brian Rust dance band or Jazz discographies fail to mention that the two collaborated in 1923 and hired west coast musicians in Los Angeles, California. A newspaper article mentions the joining of Earl Burtnett and Ray Miller, as Burtnett and Miller Famous Orchestra. What is interesting about this particular record is that the labels have been placed on the wrong side of the record, as the 3040 B appears in the inner grove with the A side label. The record has only one side of Jazz interest, where the orchestra performs “Lady of the Evening”. There are some interesting solos. The recording has been uploaded for you to listen to.

    Thank you for this lovely music.
    If I could find just one 78 such as this, I would be happy.
    My favourite find so far is titled “Miss Annabelle Lee”, I believe sung by Jack Smith.
