Jerome Conrad and his Orchestra

AKA, Harry Reser's Rounders.

Banjoist Harry Reser led his jazz bands under dozens of pseudonyms and made hundreds of records with them. His trademark seemed to be witty novelty pieces.
Reser was considered by many to be the greatest banjoist of the 1920s, if not of all time.
In the player below, you'll hear the 2 tracks;"
I faw down an' go boom!" and "Olaf (You ought-a hear Olaf laff)"
