Two trombonists: one, the groom; the other, best man.
Tommy Dorsey was married in Detroit to Mildred "Tootsie" Kraft. Bill Rank was best man.

The first recording of Tommy and Bill together, with the great Jean Goldkette. Venuti was there. Who takes the trombone breaks at 2:06-2:15?
Is that an interpolation of "I Ain't Got Nobody" at 2:45?

Nice record. Good cornet or trumpet solo (probably Tex Brewster because the other two players in the section, Ray Lodwig and Fuzzy Farrar, were known only as section men, not improvisers) and nice ragtime-y piano by Dewey Bergman. I think it's T.D. on the first trombone solo at 1:07 and Rank on the second.
