From an OKeh Records advertisement that appeared in "Talking Machine World & Radio-Music Merchant", June 1929, p.84b:
Frankie Trumbauer And His Orchestra (Exclusive OKeh Artists):
Frankie Trumbauer is prominently placed in the foremost group of musicians skilled in ultra-modern technic. He conducts dance music that is refreshingly expressed jazz.

The part of the quote that struck me the most was 'dance music that is refreshingly expressed jazz'. What a shocking contrast the people of the time must have experienced to the restrained formality of what they were used to. Girls cutting off their hems and kicking up their heels, Billy Sunday roaring away. It must have been so exciting.
