      Hello all,

      The website has been updated with 8 items of great historical
      interest to devotees of Horace Eubanks, Charles Elgar, Harrison
      Smith, Fletcher Henderson, Emile Christian, Jelly Roll Morton and J.
      Lawrence Cook.

      Noted British jazz researcher Howard Rye sends a superb essay on
      reedman Horace Eubanks. This accompanies Eubanks' WWI draft
      registration card.

      Prof. Lawrence Gushee sends an excellent essay on bandleader Antoine
      Charles Elgar. This accompanies Elgar's WWI draft registration card.

      Peter Hanley sends an excellent essay on Harrison G. Smith (a.k.a.
      the West Indian in Lomax). This accompanies Smith's WWI draft
      registration card.

      Brian Goggin sends an in-depth essay on bandleader and arranger
      Fletcher Hamilton Henderson Jr. This accompanies Henderson's WWI
      draft registration card.

      Howard Rye sends a superb essay on the trombonist Emile J. Christian.
      Much detail of his overseas travels and performances. This
      accompanies Christian's WWI draft registration card.

      Peter Hanley sends details of the full name of Dr. J. P. Oliver
      (Jelly Roll's brother-in-law). This is shown as updated text on
      the "An Essay in Genealogy" page.

      Adam Ramet sends an article titled: "Chamber Music Society of Lower
      Basin Street" from the TIME magazine dated 23rd September 1940. From
      this article it can now be reasonably certain that the "unknown"
      announcer for Jelly Roll's appearance on 14th July 1940 broadcast was
      Gene Hamilton.

      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". This
      concludes the items from Ken.

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

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

      Future essays and WWI draft registration cards will include : Tommy
      Ladnier, Paul Adolph Barbarin, Charles Lee Cooke, Tony Jackson and
      Charles Lucky Roberts.

      Musically yours

      Mike.
