In the fall of 1927, Rollini was in a position to set up a top band and he selected an all-star team. From Jean Goldkette's band he had a.o. Bix Beiderbecke, Frank Trumbauer, and Don Murray. Others include Sylvester Ahola, Frank Signorelli, and Bobby Davis. He called his band the New Yorkers after the Club where they worked. Their music was quite advanced and not suited for the general public.Publicity was good, colleagues came to listen, but the public stayed away, so it ended after a few weeks. During those weeks several recordings were made under various names, including Rollini's and Trumbauer's and Red Nichols'. When it ended, his band members went their various ways and Rollini accepted an offer to go abroad.
