Broadway's Golden Age of Musical Comedy--roughly from the Gershwin's Lady Be Good in 1924 to Cole Porter's 1934 Anything Goes--produced so many popular and jazz standards that we might even go so far as saying that this was the golden age of American Songbook composition as well. But interestingly, the best-known and best-loved versions of these songs weren't made until the 1930s and 1940s. Jesse Cloninger and The Emerald City Jazz Kings offer up a fascinating spectrum of these interpretations with everything ranging from a hotel society band, to a 1930s crooner vocalist, to a hot traditional jazz sound, and swing, including "Oh, Lady, Be Good" and "Tea For Two" (1924), "Mountain Greenery" (1926), "The Best Things In Life Are Free" (1927), "Makin' Whoopee" (1928), "Boy! What Love Has Done To Me!" and "Get Happy" (1930), "Dancing In The Dark" (1931), "It's Only A Paper Moon" (1932), "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (1933), and "Anything Goes!" (1934).
