Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
‘Raymond Scott’ was the nom d’artiste of Harry Warnow (1908–1994), a native of New York. Educated at the Juilliard School of Music, he pursued a career as dance-band pianist and musical director for Hollywood films and for CBS in New York. He achieved fame during the late 1930s with an experimental dance quintet for which he composed light novelty pieces of which the best known is The Toy Trumpet (1937). It is heard here in an orchestral version by Philip Lane (b1950).
