JAY WILBUR AND HIS ORCHESTRA

Jay Wilbur (real name Wilbur Blanco), was musical director of Dominion Records from November, 1928, to June, 1930, at which date the firm went out of business and he took up a similar post with Crystalate Records, first on Imperial, and from September, 1933, on Rex. Of the enormous number of sides he recorded, the following are known to be of interest as hot dance music, and it is likely that there are others of equal or even superior merit.

NOTE: Eva Taylor's Southernaires, allegedly the same group as the above, made a test (TO-1301) of the last title on May 15, 1933, and it has been suggested that this date is the correct one for these three numbers, June 16, 1933 being regarded as a dubbing date. As the only issued title was itself a dubbing, in the absence of any original test pressings, such a theory should be regarded with some doubt.
