Andrew Nolte and His Orchestra are Australia's foremost ensemble specializing in the jazz and dance music of the 1920s. Based in Melbourne, the orchestra performs regularly for dances, galas, weddings, and other events with unmatched pep and vitality and a dedication to authenticity.

For their first Rivermont recording, Andrew Nolte and His Orchestra perform two "hot dance" obscurities from the mid-1920s. "Lady of My Cigarette" is based on the 1925 recording by Bennie Krueger's Orchestra and "Blue Idol" is based on a 1928 recording by the Anglo-Persians. Andrew Nolte writes of selecting these two tunes: "The aim was for not the run-of-the-mill '20s stuff. Plenty of 'Charlestons' and 'Varsity Drags' out there on CDs by modern bands. These two tunes haven’t been tackled since the '20s, for their difficulty in dynamics. 'Blue Idol' and 'Lady of My Cigarette' cater to the very popular mid-'20s obsession with the Oriental minor verse, breaking into a red-hot dance chorus, making them a real pleasure to listen to (and dance to). Plenty of colour. And radical key changes. A combination of sweet and hot, light and dark." Both are delightful, tuneful selections played with gusto and recorded here in superb stereo fidelity.

Both sides were recorded in Melbourne, Australia in April 2016.
