I can't find much info on the web about Hans Brändle. The LP I found this song on has limited liner notes, and those are in German. This appears to have been recorded in 1943, right in the middle of WWII. I'm not sure how well the Nazis tolerated this kind of swing music. (Maybe it helped bring about their downfall, bwaahahahaha!!) "Karussel" is a well-recorded, smoothly executed bit of minor key swing. Enjoy!
