The Dorscy Brothers, Benny Goodman, Matty Malneck, Jack Tcagardcn, Jane Froman, Henry Bussc, Ramona and dozens of others were with me. early in their artists who add to the reputation of American music. -The composers do more-than- their part, too.

He incurred the anger of every restaurateur- in every town the band vi.sit.od by scribbling musical notes .on tablecloths. I urged 1 him to use manuscript paper instead. He did, and out of those manuscripts came "Theme and Variation on Noises in a Garage," which I introduced at Carnegie Hall in 1926. -'Grand Canyon Suite," "Mardi Gras," and the other Grofc modern classics. Sometimes it was easy to jret composers to work, other times it was tough. Tn one case, that of George Gershwin, it was just a matter of building up self-confidence in n talented boy who had been kicked from pillar to post, by the hard- boiled denizens of Tin Pan Alley. Gershwin, was an obscure flunky for a song-publishing firm when I met him. He turnea out dozens of songs, but no one would touch them—they were too unusual, too unfamiliar to fit into the standard groove. I tried to encourage this germ of originality in the young composer, suggesting that ho try his hand at something moro ambitious than a sixteer.-bar ballad. •The result was "Rhapsody in Blue." My band introduced this together with Zez Congrcy's "Kitten on the Keys" and four oi*gi: Victor Herbert Serenades, at Aeo- lia.n Hal! in February, 1324. We .called the evening "An Experiment In Modern Music." It turned out to be a noble experiment, one that affected the entire course of American music. There was Robert Katschcr, whom I met in Vienna.
