  • Description

    Title reads "And the higher the better, these daredevil jazz musicians say, who insist upon thrills accompanying their syncopations". Men standing to side of aircraft dancing & playing music on trombone, saxophone, trumpet and banjo. Some of the band are wearing flying helmets. They climb onto aircraft.

    Air to air shot of band on wings of aircraft. Man hangs upside down from wing playing the banjo. Man on other wing stands upside down playing the trumpet. Two other men stand on wings playing. Air to air shot as aircraft comes in to land. Aircraft taxis towards camera with men still on wings playing music.

    Cute story showing crazy musicians - fun.

    Note: see also "How We Fly." - I think it features the same band.
