“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!
