Hi, all,

I know, I'm probably WAY out of line with this request, since it doesn't fit any subject here.  But can anyone out there tell me anything about the violinist/leader of the Trocadero Grill Orchestra, which was working in London on Wardour Street behind Piccadilly, in the late 1890s and early 1900s?  He recorded quite a few records under Fred Gaisberg, including probably the first issued 10-inch disc.  I am looking particularly for his recording of the Andante movement of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto.  Fred Gaisberg gives his first name as Leopold, Alan Kelly says Jacques, which is probably correct, but his record labels all say G. Jacobs.

All assistance greatfully received and acknowledged.
