“FULL OF ORIGINALITY,” or HOT SHEETS

More from the eBay treasure chest:

How many LATEST JAZZ SONG CRAZES were there?

A different variety of blues, perhaps.

The AFRICANA Souvenir Edition – – – very good marketing tie-in for 1927.

One for our very own Sister Katie Cavera.

Obviously a later edition — note the connection to Dick Hyman — with the “original” cover.  What’s intriguing to me is not the racial stereotyping, but that the banjoist doesn’t feel at all threatened by the presence of a woman improviser.  Obviously a musician enlightened before his time!
