Sheik of Araby

24 Jun 2013, by Ben Rodriguez in A SONG A DAY


This one’s an old tin pan alley hit that cashed in on the latest craze of a Rudy Vallentino film back in 1921. Jack Teagarden and Red Nichols both recorded versions of it, making it a jazz standard in the 1930s. One of the composers, Ted Snyder was posting theater bills and playing cafe piano in Chicago. Harry Smith was a music and drama critic in Chicago. They began collaborating on Broadway scores after moving to NYC.
