According to Rust, Paul Van Loan was an arranger for Jean Goldkette. I have not seen Van Loan's name cited in any Bix biography. Does anyone know anything about Van Loan arranging for Goldkette?
Van Loan had a band in the 1920s and recorded dozens of sides. According to Rust, his last recording session was on Nov 30, 1925. Three sides were recorded and Red Nichols is supposed to be in the band. The three sides were Cross My Heart, Mother; Pretty Little Baby; and Heading for Louisville.
Van Loan was a member of the Arnold Johnson band on Feb 16, 1928 when the band recorded one of may favorite songs, After My Laughter Came Tears. Other members of the band were Jack Purvis, Mickey Bloom and ?Pete Pumiglio.
