Lavalle Paul (1908-1997)

Biography of Lavalle Paul:

Paul Lavalle (1908-1997) was born Joseph Usifer to Italian immigrant parents in New York, and became quite well known in the 1930s as an arranger and clarinet player, in which latter capacity he was a member of the NBC Symphony (usually playing second, occasionally third, clarinettist). He wrote a number of light orchestral pieces, including the Symphonic Rhumba of 1939, which evokes much of the character of Cuba where Lavalle had lived and worked for some time in the early 1930s. The performance on this record is believed to be the world premiere of the piece, in which of course the composer played in the orchestra.
