The Jazzmania Quintette was a really enjoyable Vitaphone short for me
This was another Vitaphone musical short I just watched on The Jazz Singer DVD. It stars The Hot Four with George Stoll on the violin. Oh, and the way he plays it is a bit unusual as you'll see if you ever watch this. There's also a female singer named Edythe Flynn who is quite stunning and has such a vibrant voice! Really, this was such a fun musical short to watch I didn't want it to end! Okay, since ten lines is required in order for this review to be submitted, I'll just also say that I've enjoyed so far many of these vintage films I've seen so far from the disc. I'm a big movie and music buff so these really are treats for me. So on that note, The Jazzmanie Quintette gets a high recommendation from me.
