Frankie Trumbauer also recorded a nice version of “Happy Feet,” as I recall. Cab Calloway, too. But Whiteman’s was the best. Wasn’t the tune a big set-piece in Whiteman’s King of Jazz film, in 1930? That movie sure needs to be restored and put on dvd. Haven’t seen it in over 20 years.

I like Happy Feet too...recorded on February 10, 1930 (see below). Can you do videos?

This one has great sound quality (it’s recorded loud, I’d start it at about 75% volume or less)

This one has a bunch of pictures from the era...to see them I just muted the sound and paused it on each one ‘cause some of them go by pretty fast. . .
