      Hello all,

      The website has been updated with items of great historical interest
      to devotees of King Oliver, Jimmy Yancey and J. Lawrence Cook.

      Peter Hanley sends a superb essay on King (Joseph Nathran) Oliver.
      This accompanies Oliver's WWI draft registration card.

      International jazz pianist Butch Thompson sends an excellent essay on
      Jimmy (James Edward) Yancey. This accompanies Yancey's WWI draft
      registration card.

      Canadian mechanical music collector Ken Vinen sends rare
      correspondence, rate cards and catalogue lists for 65-note Rewind
      Electric Pianos of J. Lawrence Cook, who set up a business on his own
      in the 1950s as the "Perforated Music Roll Specialist". I will be
      adding more items from Ken in the near future.

      The above items can be accessed from the grey UPDATED BOX at:

      http://www.doctorjazz.co.uk/

      Hope you enjoy the above contributions from my team of top-class jazz
      researchers.

      Future essays and WWI draft registration cards will include : Antoine
      Charles Elgar, Tommy Ladnier, Fletcher Hamilton Henderson Jr., Emile
      J. Christian, Paul Adolph Barbarin and Horace Eubanks.

      Musically yours

      Mike.
