Rust classifies the present side under Ted Wallace, but surprisingly on this session Ed Kirkeby (Wallace was one of the pseudonyms used by Kirkeby) may not even be involved. Many different musicians are mentioned as forming part of the "collective personnel" (actually it features an impressive array of dozens of great jazzmen), except for Ed Kirkeby! In fact for this particular side no specific personnel is known, not even the vocalist. However, although the uncredited vocalist's voice timbre sounds like Kirkeby, which would explain a lot and make these credits significantly more logical. Whoever is playing, this is a brilliant performance, recorded in 1928.

Jack, thank you for your appreciation of this posting and your feedback :-) Anyhow, after all it seems Kirkeby can be identified as the vocalist, and I partly adapted the notes.

Most welcome Michael and I am thrilled you confirm my feeling this vocalist might be Kirkeby! Since Rust didn't identify him I guessed I might be wrong but your comment, confirming my personal impression, is exactly the information I was hoping for. With Kirkeby as the vocalist, those Wallace credits all of a sudden make a lot more sense :-) I adapted the video liner notes accordingly.

Thanks a lot for your keen comment, Ginny! I agree both the arrangement and the vocal are excellent.

Thanks. I agree with your assessment of this recording. I will accept fatsfan71's educated guess that the vocalist is actually Kirkeby.

Thanks Patrick. To my ear the vocalist sounds very much like Ed Kirkeby - the slight quavering off-key on the higher notes is typical of his singing.
