The California Ramblers in sparkling sound

Here are three 1928 Columbia records by the unjustly neglected dance band California Ramblers. While the vocals on these records may not thrill hot jazz aficionados, YouTuber Atticus70 has gleaned astonishingly rich sounds from the grooves of these 78 rpm records. The horns in particular sparkle with a freshness unmatched by many contemporary studio recordings.

Congratulations to Atticus70 for 1,000 marvellous YouTube videos, featuring fantastic vintage music and captivating period photography.
