<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">We know that in 1928 Whiteman made a contract with the Holton Company; the Whiteman musicians received complimentary Holton instruments, Bix a cornet, Margulis, Pinder and Goldfield trumpets (they all also received flugelhorns and concertphones). Eight years earlier, Nick LaRocca had been given a silver and gold cornet by the Holton company.
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;"><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">This comes from the very useful reference Vince gave us.

<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">James LaRocca, Leader, Has Silver and Gold
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">Cornet as Gift From Frank Holton Co.
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">The original Dixie Land Jazz Band, which is
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">back in America after a highly successful year
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">and one-half's engagement in London, where it
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">appeared under the management of Albert De-
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">Courville and Mitchell and Booker, has entered
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">upon its American season. It is under contract
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">with the Salvin interests and appears nightly at
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">the Follies Bergere, New York City, and is
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">more than duplicating its former tremendous
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">New York success.
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">James LaRocca, cornetist and leader of the
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">band, has been presented with a beautiful silver
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">and gold instrument by the Frank Holton Co.,
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">the Elkhorn, Wis., band instrument manufacturers.
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">Mr. LaRocca has been a Holton enthusiast
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">and booster for the past ten years, and also
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">has the distinction of introducing the Holton
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">saxophones into England. Mr. LaRocca's new
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">Holton cornet is causing a great deal of favorable
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">comment from the musical profession and
<p style="margin:0in 0in 0pt;">dancing public along Broadway.

In his message, Vince also attached the photo of Miff Mole smiling and asked me to post the message <strong>and</strong> the photo. I just noticed the photo a few minutes ago. Here it is!

Hello Vince,

The Milne Special Collections at The Unviveristy of New Hampshire  gives the following listing

Gigolo
Copyright Date: 1926
Composer: John Milton Hagen
Lyricist: Marian Gillespie
Performer: Mons. Dario with Irene & Nadine
Illustrator:
Publisher: M. Witmark & Sons, New York

I googled "Dario Irene Nadine" and lo and behold I found a reference in the site you gave us!! It describes the new dance from Paris, "Gigolo."

From the Music Trade Review, Oct 16, 1926,
<em>Mons. Dario Introduces New Parisian Dance, The Gigolo </em><em>Demonstration of New Terpsichorean Effort </em><em>Regular Feature at Beaux Arts, New York </em><em>Witmark & Sons Publish Music </em><em>Mons. Dario, the internationally famous </em><em>dancer, now featured at the Beaux Arts, New </em><em>York, nightly, is introducing in America for the </em><em>first time the new Parisian dance called "The </em><em>Gigolo"pronounced "jeeg-o-lo." </em><em>The "Gigolo," which threatens to succeed the </em><em>Charleston, is the French word for a dancing </em><em>man and one who rents out his dancing services [see note]</em><em>as partner to wealthy women. Dario and his </em><em>fair dancing mates, "Nadine" and "Irene," demonstrate </em><em>the steps of the "Gigolo" nightly at the </em><em>Beaux Arts Cafe. The dance is a simple one </em><em>and can be learned by any dancer of any </em><em>ability. </em><em>M. Witmark & Sons, New York, have acquired </em><em>the exclusive publishing rights of the </em><em>music, which is also called "Gigolo," and they </em><em>are issuing it in song and fox-trot form with </em><em>an American lyric by Marian Gillespie, writer </em><em>of "When You Look in the Heart of a Rose," </em><em>the hit of "The Better 'Ole." </em><em>The lyric of "Gigolo" is as witty and clever as the music </em><em>is catchy and lilting and the new dance promises </em><em>to be the sensation of the season for </em><em>singers, dance orchestras and dancers.</em> Note: As well as "other services." So Jean Goldkette was up to date with the tune and the dance when the band was appearing in Roseland in Oct 1926. He or members of the Goldkette band may have gone to the Beaux Arts Cafe and saw Monsieur Dario and his dancing partners doing the new French dance, "Le Gigolo." Bridget, do you know about this dance? Albert

Great song, but not the song "Gigolo" mentioned as one of the tunes played by Goldkette. Of course my favorite version, of all the ones you listed, is Bing's. Take a listen,

http://www.jazz-on-line.com/a/rame/VIC61078-2.ram

Here are the lyrics

Was in a Paris cafe that first I found him
He was a Frenchman, a hero of the war
But war was over
And here's how peace had crowned him
A few cheap medals to wear and nothing more
Now every night in the same cafe he shows up
And as he strolls by ladies hear him say
If you admire me, hire me
A gigolo who knew a better day

Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playing
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Every night some heart betraying
There will come a day
Youth will pass away
Then what will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say just a gigolo
As life goes on without me

Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
People know the part I'm playing
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Every night some heart betraying
There will come a day
Youth will pass away
Then what will they say about me
When the end comes I know
They'll say just a gigolo
As life goes on without me

This tune was composed by Leonello Casucci. with  English lyrics by Julius Brammer and Irving Caesar, copyrighted in 1930..

Just A Gigolo" was composed by Leonaldo Casucci with lyrics in German by Julius Brammer. Irving Caesar wrote the English lyrics.

Here are two versions -as tangos- by German bands, one with vocal, the other instrumental.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkIxPCXrcH4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gDBNgPs ... re=related

Incidentally, just last week the Unesco declared the tango part of the "planet's intangible cultural treasures." Indeed, a great style of music. I have more than a thousand Argentinian tangos from the 20s, 30s and 40s.

Albert

The jazz on line site has a whole bunch of versions of the tune.
