One of the leading collectors of rare jazz records is Bill Elliott, President of the Number One Rhythm Club, and also founder of the rhythm-club movement in general. He is always up-to-date in acquiring the very latest jazz connoisseur discs from America. Some of these have just arrived from the States, and those to be played this evening are representative of the very latest output from the home of hot music.
Among the artists whom you will hear are Joe Sullivan at the piano; Teddy Bunn, the well-known guitarist; and Sydney Bechet, who is reputed to be the finest soprano saxophone-player in the world.

and the Continental Players
Ernest Leggett and the Continental Players broadcast their first characteristic programme of Continental music in May 1937, and have since been responsible for the introduction into this country of a great many Continental tunes that have subsequently become popular. Among the more notable of these are Marquina's 'Spanish Gypsy Dance', and the popular tango song, 'Play to me, Gypsy'.
Leggett has been broadcasting since 1927, and has brought four combinations to the microphone, including the Continental Players.
