With all of the Miff Mole conversation, I decided to look for video of him on You Tube, and there are a couple of clips:



The first is an entire number by Leo Roesner and His Capitolians.  If you have trouble reading the title at the start, the musicians identified are Jimmy Dorsey (sax), Mole (trombone), Leo McConville (trumpet), Lou Calabrese (banjo), Jimmy Lytell (clarinet), Arthur Schutt, and Rube Bloom (pianos).  In addition the comments also identify Nat Brusiloff playing "single hair" violin, trombonist Ward Silloway (sitting next to Mole), Joe Venuti playing a four-string solo and Vic Berton playing mostly tympani, cymbal, and newspaper.

The second clip is Mole's solo only from the same film.  I
