Never seen it. Obviously for some specific band—the costume would indicate. The extras remind me of Sonny Greer's kit with Ellington.

One tom-tom, and just one cymbal? The basic traps look pretty bare bones for 1927. Hadn't he invented the high-hat by then?

Albert, this is another photo of Vic Berton.
Notice that in the photo I posted Berton wears less formal attire.
