Recorded in New York City on September 30th 1927 featuring Irving Kaufman vocals, Bix Beiderbecke cornet, Bill Rank trombone, Don Murray clarinet, Frank Trumbauer c-melody sax, Bobby Davis alto sax, Joe Venuti violin, Eddie Lang guitar, Frank Signorelli piano, Adrian Rollini bass sax, and Chauncey Morehouse drums.
*"I'm Wondering Who" was composed by Harry Von Tilzer and Peter DeRose, with lyrics by Jo Trent.
-The song was originally featured in the 1927 Broadway musical "Burlesque" starring Barbara Stanwych & Hal Skelly.
This recording of the Frank Trumbauer ensemble was released in the U.S. on the Okeh label under Benny Meroff's name, and in Great Britain on Parlophone (accurately) as "Frankie Trumbauer's Augmented Orchestra". Okeh's reasoning for this was ultimately part of a convoluted scheme to boost record sales taking full advantage of Meroff's status as a violinist beloved by theatrical audiences.
