Hardcover - Inscribed by Arthur Lange to "Harvey P Fisher - Violinist 1926" / includes calling card from Miss Ida Forsyne (tel Morningside 3806) VERY clean, no marks, clean inside, very clean bright burgundy boards with gilt lettering, unsunned spine no dj Arthur Lange (April 16, 1889 - December 7, 1956) was a United States bandleader and Tin Pan Alley composer of popular music. He composed music for over 120 films, including Grand Canary and Woman on the Run. Lange shared an Oscar nomination with Hugo Friedhofer for the film The Woman in the Window. All in all he was nominated four times for Oscars but did not win any. During the first half of the 1920s Lange recorded copiously for Cameo Records. His 1923 orchestra, which also played the Cinderella Ballroom on Broadway and which included "hot" trumpeters Earl Oliver and Tommy Gott, was at the end of that year bought by young well-to-do bandleader Roger Wolfe Kahn, and it is not known whether the recordings Lange made after this point and up to 1926 were still made by these musicians (Kahn himself didn't start recording under his own name for Victor Records until March 1925) or by another group. His 1928 recordings for Pathé Records were however almost certainly made by another unknown personnel. Though Lange himself played both piano and banjo he seems (with the exception of a recording by his "Lange trio" in 1922) to have only acted as conductor and arranger on his band recording dates. Lange was a prolific arranger of dance band orchestrations during the 1920s. His "stock" orchestrations were in use by many bands of the day. Lange wrote "Arranging for the Modern Dance Orchestra" which was the definitive work of its day (published Robbins Music, 1926). Ida Forsyne - (" Topsy ") - Living over a saloon, Ida's Mother was a maid and her father disappeared when she was two years old. Her mother was not very supportive of her dancing and didn't think she could dance but dancing she did, even if only for pennies in front of a candy store. By the time she turned ten, she was working as a Pick (Pickaninny) at the Chicago Worlds Fair doing the Cakewalk. While living over the saloon she would get to sneak in and watch some of the shows, here she met a "sportin' house" pianist named Willie Mason who showed Ida her first real dance steps. Sneaking into many shows around town and watching the rehearsals she was able to learn more dancing and was becoming a experienced hustler. By the time Ida was fourteen she ran away from home by joining a Tab Show called the Black Bostonians which had her singing a song and doing an eccentric Legomania style Buck Dance routine. The show went broke in Montana and Ida hand to sing in the streets for money for a ticket home. Ida was basically as self trained Vernacular dancer who would portray a colored "Topsy" girl character who would sing and dance. She wore a bandana, created dances such as her Sack Dance and even got the chorus lines to Blacken' Up (Blackface) during her performances. She became a real success. However her biggest success would be when she created her Russian Dance routines complete with Russian costumes made in St. Petersburg, Russia, Boots and had her own music scored for her as well. She did these Russian dances abroad for many years and later the states. In America, the Russian dance was usually performed with what they called 'Kazotsky's', where the dancer squats down, crosses their arms across their chest and kicks their legs out alternately. Altho this was an already established Hungarian dance called Czardas and not Russian, most Americans would not know the difference and still today see it as Russian dancing. Ida Forsyne was one of the first American woman to do these 'Kazotsky's' at the end of her performance in her Moscow program. These "Kazotsky's where done long before her but after this one performance, and her improvisations of it, she would be hailed (incorrectly) as the greatest Russian dancer of all time as she trave.
