Roaring Twenties: Charley Straight's Orch. Too Busy, 1928


Charley STRAIGHT’s Orchestra – Too Busy, Fox Trot (Miller Cohn) with Vocal Chorus by Frank Sylvano, Brunswick 1928 (USA) NOTE: Charles (“Charley”) STRAIGHT was born in 1891 in Chicago, Illinois, his father was American and mother was born in Sweden. He was a pianist, bandleader and composer, who started his career in 1909 accompanying singer Gene Greene in a vaudeville theatre. In 1916, he began working at the Imperial Piano Roll Company in Chicago, where he recorded dozens of piano rolls. He worked with Roy Bargy, who was the leader, pianist and arranger of the Benson Orchestra of Chicago between 1920 1922 (when he was replaced by Don Bestor), and later worked with the orchestras of Isham Jones and of Paul Whiteman and recorded piano solos for Victor. Thanks to their cooperation, Charlie Straight and Roy Bargy did a lot to popularize ragtime and transcribe the ragtime rolls into the sheet music form. In 1922 Straight formed his own Charley Straight Orchestra which was enormously popular in Chicago throughout the 1920s, especially when he started performing in a trendy Rendezvous Café. He recorded a lot for Paramount and Brunswick Records through the 1920s, however the Great Depression and onset of a swing era meant the decline of his band’s career. He died tragically one evening in Chicago in 1940, after being struck by a car, just when he was emerging from a manhole in the street. At the time, Straight was already out from the music business, working as a sanitary inspector for the city of Chicago.Roaring Twenties: Charley Straight&039;s Orch. Busy,
