“Sweet” bands had been often even more pop than jazz, and Duchin’s was zero different. His music group was hugely well-known within the ’30s, producing not only plenty of information but radio and film performances. His profession waned within the ’40s because of a combined mix of armed forces service and disease. Duchin had not been a virtuoso pianist, playing the easiest of styles.

Due to his flashy piano playing, as well as his personal charisma, he assumed Reisman's place as leader of the 10-piece Central Park Casino Orchestra in 1931. Coast-to-coast radio broadcasts and sponsored shows (Cadillac Motor Cars, Pall Mall Cigarettes, Elizabeth Arden Cosmetics, Texaco) ensured his ever-growing popularity with and exposure to the public. His band was also featured at top spots, like the Waldorf-Astoria, the Persian Room of the Plaza Hotel in New York and the Cocoanut Grove of the Ambassador in LA.|
