Return to Recordings

Cy’s earliest recordings were on the Liberty Music Shop label, and included individual 78rpm discs on which he accompanied a number of singers.  Indeed, Cy’s talented presence made him a sort of de facto music director for the record label.  From 1938-1942, besides the Porgy And Bess LMS album (on which he accompanied Mabel Mercer on three of the six sides), the Songs By Greta Keller album, and the Jean Cavall album, all pictured below, Cy accompanied the following vocal artists on the following individual discs in performing the songs indicated:

Audrey Christie  LMS 235 (At The Roxy Music Hall;  How To Win Friends And Influence People) (with Gil Bowers on duo pianos)
