Iâm pleased to present "The Venture Capital Follies of 1929", featuring an innovative sound and recording process that brings the jazz inspired pop music of the 1920âs to life in a way never before heard.

This uniquely American musical art form was born from an era in which attitudes about morality and authority were challenged on every front â from hemlines to prohibition. These songs were the battle call of a generation. Twenty piece orchestras and sparkling vocalists brought the music to life in clubs and dance halls.

Because of the limitations of sound recording of that time, the life and vitality of the orchestration and arrangements were reduced to a homogenized, thin, grainy sound â what we normally think of when we consider music from this era.

This CD however is a live, state of the art recording â with a difference. Conventional techniques record each section seperately and them combine
them in the mixing process. The GKM Newport Orchestra, a 20 piece
orchestra with featured vocalist Valerie Peterson, performs each piece
live with individual mics and high fidelity recording that ensures not one
note of one artist in the ensemble is lost. The result is an incomparable, alive, vibrant sound not heard for decades, and in fact never before heard in a 1920âs recording.


August 25 - (Los Angeles) â Long After Lunch Music today announced the release of âThe Venture Capital Follies of 1929â. The album is a collection of songs popular in the 1920âs, re-arranged and recorded earlier this year featuring Los Angeles-based musicians Paul Frederick and Val Peterson. The album represents a rare venture to recreate the sound and style of the late 20s musical era.

"We are very excited to pay tribute to the wonderful songwriters and musicians from this era who had such a huge impact on popular music throughout the rest of the century," said saxophonist Frederick, who produced, arranged and performed on all 12 tracks. Val Petersonâs authentic, stylistic vocals complete the albumâs unique atmosphere. "These selections fit well with many of today's retro film, television, and commercial productions but have been very hard to find in any music library," she added.

âWe were fascinated by the idea of doing a period recording that would convey real time sound. The limitations of recording technology back then made all those old recordings sound slightly shrill, thin, grainy & faster than an authentic performance. Weâve faithfully rendered the 20âs style with excellent sound quality,â adds Frederick. âNow you can hear all the subtleties of these layered orchestrations, not just a wash of sound.â

âThe Venture Capital Follies of 1929â was recorded by an authentic 20 piece Orchestra in a state of the art Hollywood studio, with some of Los Angelesâ finest session musicians. It features selections that defined the âGatsbyâ decade. Tracks like "Plucky Lindyâs Lucky Day" and âIâm In The Market For Youâ reflect the whimsical novelty songs popular at the time, while tracks like the lush âIâm Confessinââ and dreamy âPretendingâ have taken their place in the standard repertoire. With elements of Dixieland, classical, and jazz, the overall effect is that of a sophisticated, carefree culture on the brink of change.

Peterson has been singing jazz in clubs up and down the West Coast for 10 years, has released two CD as a singer/songwriter, and can be heard on many film and television productions. âSince I was classically trained, I couldnât wait to work on a project that bridged so many genres. These arrangements are so meaty, and thereâs no feeling like the power of a live orchestra playing behind you.â

Frederick adds, âHaving composed music on over 35 film & television productions, it felt right to go âliveâ again.â Some of his credits include VH1: Behind the Music series, Emmy nominated TV movie, âLaughter on the 23rd Floorâ and "Cowboy Up (Inside The Extreme World Of Bull Riding),â

This CD can be purchased with a full color Art Deco style booklet at, or the tracks can be downloaded from Apple iTunes, Rhapsody, and Yahoo. It can be special ordered from 2,400 music retailer throughout the world. All tracks are also available for film, television, and commercial licensing.

Paul Frederick is a third generation musician/band leader based in Los Angeles. Specializing in saxophone and clarinet, he regularly performs and records all over the country as well as composing and arranging music for a variety of projects. He has taught composing classes for the DWW at AFI, and is published with Warner Brothers and Alfred Publications.

âWe plan on releasing a follow up album with over 20 new arrangements of other fabulous 1920âs song that we have been performing live, both vintage and new originals in the 20âs style. We also are developing a release of original material in the style of Louie Prima and Nat King Cole,â reveals Frederick.
