Come and Trip It: Instrumental Dance Music 1780s-1920s

Three leading orchestras are featured – the Federal Music Society favors the Victorian era, Dick Hyman & his Dance Orchestra cover the Edwardian years through to the early 1920’s, and Gerard Schwartz and his Dance Orchestra cover the 1920’s.

This album is essential for lovers of early popular music, and especially for those who are into vintage dancing. Every piece is a classic, and suitably timed and arranged for dancing. It’s a collection that is certainly worth owning.
