From  http://www.20sjazz.com/videos/film-arch ... tette.html

"In this 1928 Vitaphone released this film short featuring a very young Georgie Stoll (he was 22) and his little
jazz band the "Jazzmania Quintette", including the extremely charming but slightly off-key Edythe Flynn. 

Titles are: "Ain't She Sweet", "What'll You Do", "Is She My Girlfriend", "Beautiful",
and "I Ain't Got Nobody"

At one point the pianist plays a phrase from Bix Beiderbecke's composition "In A Mist." Also nice examples of 'Single cymbal' drumming and Georgie Stoll playing the violin with the bow loosened and inverted as did Joe Venuti, allowing him to play all four strings simultaneously. Stoll was a child prodigy who would later become the music director for MGM Film Studios from 1937 until 1962 when he retired."

According to IMDB: Stars: George Stoll, Edythe Flynn, The Hot Four. Who are the other three (bass, piano, high hat cymbal)?

Miss Flynn starts out all right, but as she seems to tire I suspect she could strip paint.
