The Waldorf–Astoria Orchestra was an orchestra that played primarily at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, both the old and new locations. In addition to providing dinner music at the famous hotel, the orchestra made over 300 recordings and many radio broadcasts. It was established in the 1890s, and was directed by Joseph Knecht, at least from 1908 to 1925, later by Jack Denny and others, and then Xavier Cugat from approximately 1933 to 1949.

The Lady in Red, a rhumba recorded April 1, 1935, was the inspiration for Louis Prima’s famous swing rendition, waxed on May 17th of that year with clarinetist Pee Wee Russell.
