A fantasy on Negro moods by Reginald Foresythe played by Henry Hall and his Dance Orchestra, with Reginald Foresythe at the piano on records
Reginald Foresythe , as well as being a first-class pianist and running his own dance band, has composed a great many works, some of which bear striking originality, as any will agree who have heard ' Serenade for a Wealthy Widow ', and ' The Autocrat before Breakfast '. ' Southern Holiday' is one of his longest works, and might be described as a tone poem of Negro life and spirit.
