This card was printed to advertise an ongoing Thursday night gig at Jazz LTD, a jazz club in Chicago - probably in the late 1950s. A very interesting image!!

Hodes has signed the card on the front (see above image - and click image for closeup) and has wrtten a note on the blank side (see below)

The postcard measures 3.5 x 6.25" and is in excellent condition.

One of the great unsung heroes of jazz - and a great and underrated jazz pianist in his own right.

Hodes career spanned from the 1930s to the 1980s - and he contributed greatly to the world of jazz literature in the mid 1940s by publishing and editing the important jazz periodical, "The Jazz Record". The Jazz Record was unique and important because instead of merely a collection of jazz criticisms and editorials, the stories were told by the musisians themselves. Hodes enlisted many jazz greats to either write their own articles or tell their stories via interview. A great collection of articles from "The Record" were published in a volume called "Selections from the Gutter".

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
