Here's another piece from the infamous "Francis Zane Collection". There are 15 signatures on this great piece along with some clippings from a show the Hampton Orchestra did at the Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco in the 1940s. Signatures include:

Lionel Hampton
Bobby Plato (alto sax)
Jerome Richardson (alto sax)
James Cleveland (trombone)
Albert Grey (trombone)
Eddie Mullens (trumpet)
Johnny Board (tenor sax)
Ben Kynard (baritone sax)
Walter Williams (trumpet)
Jeanette Franklin (vocal)
Ellis Bartel (drums)
Curley Hamner (drums)
Irma Curry (vocal)
SONNY PARKER! (The great jump blues vocalist)
AND comedienne Kitty Murray (she played Rochester's girlfriend on the old Jack Benny Radio Program)

A neat piece of history - judging from the clippings ("Hampton Storms Gate!") this piece was signed on exceptionally smoking evening of entertainment.

The page measures 10x16" and is in excellent condition. I couldn't get the whole thing in the scan, but between the two scans I managed to fit all the signatures (but not all the clippings!)

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
