This appears to be yet another California Ramblers pseudonym. The California Ramblers 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 exquisite record was made in 1928. Vocal by Ed Kirkeby.

I did not think of that possibility, but it would be perfect as a pseudonym indeed! So great you loved this outstanding performance.

The pseudonym may be quite appropriate for this recording - considering the song title. "Mc" = "son of" and "Alpineers" of course, are familiar with high hill tops ! Whether the pseudonym alludes to "sons of the hill climbers" is academic. The music however, is something else. Thank you for sharing another most enjoyable post. It is much appreciated.
