Noted jazz critic Scott Yanow has observed that "when listening to or discussing jazz from the 1920s, it is easy to just stick to the big names like Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Fletcher Henderson, Bix Beiderbecke, and Duke Ellington. But in reality a great deal of music was recorded during that era. The average listener of the time was not necessarily aware of the jazz giants, and was mostly concerned with getting music that was hot, melodic, full of pep, and danceable." Lou Gold's name may not be well-known today, but in the 1920s, he was responsible for hundreds of popular "hot dance" records.

Born Louis Milton Goldwasser in Russia in 1890, he emigrated to the United States with his parents when he was three years old.
