CLASSIC BLUES, SNAPPY TODDLE, and A DOWN HOME CHANT

From eBay: an original paper sign for QRS piano rolls, nicely preserved, just the thing to hang over your piano if you like CLASSIC BLUES or perhaps SNAPPY TODDLE . . . by the master of jazz piano, James Price Johnson.  It’s a bit early in the day for SNAPPY TODDLE, but it will be possible after breakfast.  Hail James P.!

I’ll bet that the store where this advertisement was displayed had a wonderful section of those race records, too — Paramounts and Gennetts.  Where’s my time machine and my largest suitcase?

  1. who doesn’t love a good old down home chant with that snappy toddle feeling? let me know if you find a time machine.

  2. Dear D,
    I have found a time machine — it’s my computer. I don’t leave my chair but am transported into other realms with not too much difficulty. Free, easy, and accessible. But you know this already!
