Biography

Composer Jack port Strachey is most from the pop regular “These Foolish Factors (Remind Me personally of You),” though he’s also remembered in Britain as an writer of light orchestra instrumentals. Strachey was created Jack port Strachey Parsons in Brighton, Britain, in 1894, and initial started writing music for movie theater productions (including 1927’s Female Good luck) and musical revues. He struck up a relationship with Eric Maschwitz (who occasionally wrote beneath the name Holt Marvell) in the first ’30s, and their cooperation on “These Foolish Factors” (alongside American-born Harry Hyperlink) for the 1936 London revue Pass on It Abroad provided them a massive strike on both edges from the Atlantic. IN THE US alone, five TOP versions had been recorded that season (the largest by Benny Goodman), and France professional Jean Sablon — who was simply originally likely to premiere the tune but supported out, to become changed by Dorothy Dickson — documented it for popular in his indigenous country beneath the name “Ces Petites Choses.” Through the ’40s, Strachey transferred into solo structure, crafting light, easy hearing pieces for United kingdom orchestras. One of the best-known had been “Theatreland” (1940), “Shaftesbury Avenue,” “Green Champagne,” “Ascot Parade,” “Mayfair Parade,” and “Starlight Luxury cruise.” Additionally, 1944’s “In Party Mood” became the theme tune for the BBC radio display known as Housewives’ Choice, which went from 1946 through 1967. He continuing to utilize Maschwitz aswell, co-writing the 1949 stage musical Belinda Good; he also teamed up with Alan Stranks to create the Ink Places’ British strike “No Orchids for My Woman.” Strachey passed on in 1972.
