He writes "Any idea who's soloing on trumpet on this? It didn't sound like Earl Oliver to me. Suggestions?"

I looked for a recording of Collette by Earl Oliver in several data bases but met with failure. I found (not the music itself in all cases, just the reference) versions by the California Ramblers, the Broadway Bellhops, Irving Abrams, Harry Reser. Sam Lanin, Willie Creager, Ernie Golden, etc.

Can anyone identify the orchestra and the trumpet soloist? He listened to Red and to Bix.

Forget about the label. It has nothing to do with the recording being played.

Thanks for posting that. Here's what I think is information about that recording from this link:

Uncredited vocal refrain with Earl Oliver and his Orchestra.

- its listing for Bell 513 is wrong.

Looking up this issue in William R. Bryant's well-researched book "Bell and Arto Records", we find the following:

Bell 513 Collette (Kahn - Baer)
Earl Oliver & his Melody Men
Mx: 31136- (Studio: Emerson) Rec: c. May 1927

That's My Idea of Heaven (Johnson-Tobias-Sherman)
Club Mirador Orchestra [Johnny Johnson & his Club Mirador Orchestra]
Mx: 31128- (Studio: Emerson) Rec: c. May 1927
Note (both sides): Original issue on Bell

On Bell 518, we find:

Me and My Shadow (Rose-Jolson-Dreyer)
Sherman Club Orchestra
Mx: 31149- (Studio: Emerson) Rec: c. June 1927
Source issue: Emerson 3148 (Marlborough Dance Orchestra) (Rel: July 1927)

Magnolia (Mix the Lot, What've You Got?) (De Sylva-Brown-Henderson)
Club Mirador Orchestra [Johnny Johnson & his Club Mirador Orchestra]
Mx: 31153-2 (Studio: Emerson) Rec: c. June 1927
Source issue: Emerson 3149 (Johnny Johnson's Club Mirador Orchestra) (Rel: c. July 1927)

The 78 Online Discography list "Magnolia" also for Bell 518.

It sounds a bit like Irving Peskin to me. Hard to say without any primary source information for 1927.
