Although this song was uploaded before in an exquisite vocal version by Marion Harris (either check or , I decided to upload to share this totally different jazz version. "Billy Evans' Happy Five" appears to be one the dozens pseudonyms of the California Ramblers. They were a popular and prolific jazz group from the 1920s, that recorded hundreds of songs under many different record labels throughout the 1920s. Three of the members of the band, Red Nichols, Jimmy Dorsey, and Tommy Dorsey, would go on to front big bands in later decades. The original bandmembers were from Ohio, but chose the name California Ramblers because they thought people would be less inclined to listen to a jazz band from the Midwest. They recorded for nearly every independent label in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., using over 100 unique aliases. This brilliant record was made in 1927.

So welcome Ginny! So glad you enjoyed this special jazz version so much and obviously, it is fascinating to compare it to Harris' delicate interpretation.

Quite a jazzed up rendition of this old favorite. This song was made famous by Coon~Sanders Nighthawks when they were broadcasing coast to coast US over WDAF in Kansas City in the 1920s. I'll have to pit up that version on DM.
