The second of two Biograph LPs that feature superior jazz-influenced dance music by the California Ramblers
has a dozen titles originally recorded for the Edison label, five of which are over four minutes long (which was quite extended for the 1920s). Some of the soloists include bass saxophonist Adrian Rollini
, altoist Bobby Davis
, clarinetist Jimmy Dorsey
, trumpeter Red Nichols
, and trombonist Tommy Dorsey
; the latter two just appear on a memorable version of "Everything Is Hotsy-Totsy Now." Despite the general lack of big names, the high musicianship of the group (which was comprised of top studio musicians), the catchy arrangements, and the functional solos combine to create music that perfectly fits the era.
