Ruby Newman was a bandleader who enjoyed a successful career during the 1930s as he formed a series of society orchestras to perform at the plush hotels in the cities of the US north-west, most notably the Ritz-Carlton in Boston, where he enjoyed long-term engagements over the years. He performed on radio and was one of the many “sweet orchestras” whose easy-listening dance music was a staple of popular entertainment during the Depression years, maintaining its profile even as the big swing bands began to dominate the charts. He was a close associate of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and often played at the White House. This 48-track 2-CD collection comprises selected releases on the Victor, Associated, Brunswick and Decca labels from this era, featuring the various incarnations of his orchestra. It includes all his career hits including the Top 10 entries “My Silent Love”, “Sing, Baby, Sing” and “Please Come Out Of Your Dream”, plus “On Your Toes” and “So Ashamed”. The recordings feature vocal performances by Buddy Clark, Barry McKinley, Ray Morton , Adelaide Moffet, Gordon Graham, Ray Heatherton, Larry Taylor, Bob Hannon and The Funnyboners. It’s an entertaining introduction to one of the lesser-known names of the era, and a slice of pure nostalgia, as he recorded early versions of many Great American Songbook classics which were introduced during these years.
