Hello Bill and Dan
Prince's May 1911 recording of "High society" is on VJM Lp VLP 51.
It's certainly "our tune" and is probably similar to the 1910 recording
by the Regimental Band of the Republic.
In the trio the melody is taken by the trombones, with piccolo
(?piccolos) soloing ornamentally. As Dan notes, the piccolo solo is not
the standard "Picou" version.
All the best
