"Johnny Green has written some 'serious' works. In the early 1930's, he composed a work called "Night Club: Six Impressions". This work, for orchestra and three pianos, was commissioned by Paul Whiteman. Subsequently, it was played by the Whiteman Orchestra, the BBC Orchestra (in London), and by the CBS Symphony under the baton of Andre Kostelanetz."

Johnny Green was a sensational pop song writer in the 1930s with numerous ultra-hits - BODY AND SOUL, OUT OF NOWHERE, I Cover The Waterfront and others. But he also wrote this "Night Club: Six Impressions" or "Night Club Suite: Six Impressions" (references both ways on line.)

Apparently never recorded, but performed at least 3 times.

I've already checked with 2 Whiteman and Green experts and they have no clue.

Proximity wise, would any of you British blokes like to take a stab on sourcing this out over in the UK?

The world would be in your debt!
