Copenhagen – California Ramblers

Here’s a jazzy acoustical recording by the California Ramblers.   Had the session taken place a year later this would have been electrically recorded.

“Copenhagen” was composed by the early jazz bandleader Charlie Davis and, according to legend, was named not after the city but rather the brand of chewing tobacco favored by one of his musicians.   Starting at 1:32 into the recording you will be able to hear the bass sax of Adrian Rollini.
