Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording contains Ferde Grofe's 1924-1927 Ampico Recordings (the American Piano Company), which were piano rolls. These Ampico rolls are the primarily legacy of Grofe's impressive piano skills. His piano treatments are much like his orchestrated arrangements in that the melody is always at the forefront and tempos are usually more relaxed than some of the more frenetic paces set by jazz recordings of the 20's.
