TJR says

The New World Orchestra were one of the fabricated “in-house” monikers used by Trans-World, a part of Miller International Company of Media, Pennsylvania, which was run by David L. Miller. The label started in 1956 and lasted to about 1958. As well played as it undoubtedly is, this is about as interesting as hotel elevator music, although the cheezeball liner notes do their best to separate you from your pound: “The New World Theatre Orchestra presents this sparkling programme of hits from the period when the dance trend was in its golden age. The 1930s and 1940s. Two decades of great songs played by bands that laid in the beat. These are songs that somehow seem to have been constructed for a dance feel. These arrangements are pure dance arrangements. They leave nothing to be denied in tempo or melodic content. Put down your coke or cocktail - let’s get up and dance - to hits of the thirties and forties.
