Program Notes

An Alford original, Roll ’Em Up has a strong vaudeville connection: it was dedicated to Al. Sweet (1876–1945), leader of the famous “White Hussars” stage band act.

Harry Alford was the first arranger to truly understand and support the new concept of the single-player “drum set” as it was developing in the early 1900s. He consulted with the best players and the most innovative manufacturers (Ludwig, Leedy, and Slingerland -- all Chicago-based) and became an expert on the technique of set drumming.
