Happy Six - The first rose of summer (1922) (Columbia A2797 mtx 78572) (78rpm)

The Happy Six was an early jazz band, one of several outfits managed by Harry Yerkes. The made numerous recordings for Columbia Records, many of which were commercial and artistic successes.
The Happy Six recorded between from 1919 to 1923.

Alcide Nunez recorded as a member of the group from 1919 to 1920. Another musician from New Orleans, Tom Brown, was a prominent member. Other members included Phil Ohman and George Hamilton Green. Some of the recordings feature Ted Fiorito on piano. Jack Kaufman occasionally provided vocal choruses. The group's music reflects its mix of New-Orleans' jazzmen and classically trained musicians. The results range from traditional jazz to pop, and as such the group has been called an early experiment in jazz fusion.
The Happy Six released more than 80 sides on Columbia.
