Notes & Reviews:

"Swinging Welte" is part of TACET's "Welte Mystery Series" which explores the unknown piano rolls that rose to popularity in the 1920's. Fifty piano rolls were recovered from the basement of Hans Schmitz, an expert and specialist in the alignment of Welte pneumatics. Presented here are eighteen of those rolls, performed by various legendary pianists including George Gershwin and Hans Sommer
