"Pretty Little Thing" by Herman Kenin and his Multnomah Hotel Orchestra

by

Nick kindly sent an mp3 of "Pretty Little Thing" by Herman Kenin and his Multnomah Hotel Orchestra, recorded on May 29, 1927 in Portland, Oregon. Nick writes, "Great string bass a la Steve Brown by Jim Taft, and a rather "Goldkettish" sound overall don't you think?" Listen

Indeed. The "Goldkette sound"  of  Herman Kenin and his Multnomah Hotel Orchestra was discussed in the forum. See http://www.network54.com/Forum/27140/message/992435420

Herman Kenin became president of the American Federation of Musicians. He is mentioned in an excellent webpage about "Portland's Radio Days." (Lisa, some great photos in the page).

The Multnomah Hotel was built in 1911 and was a luxurious hotel. Take a look.
