FWIW, Russ Morgan was a trombonist, so perhaps it was a sort of gag gift
Andy Mansfield was the pianist on the Ray Miller & His Hotel Gibson
Orchestra sides recorded for Brunswick in Chicago (in October 1927)and
Cincinnnati (in February 1928). A "Happy Mansfield" was the bass player
for the band when it recorded in 1926 - perhaps a relative?
