Here's two great rare items from this unsung luminary of traditional and swing jazz . The signed piece is a payroll advance slip dated 11/29/1397, filled out in pencil in Kaminsky's hand. It looks as if he began to write is address under the amount - and I can't make out the word written beneath his name. The amount he needed was three bucks. the piece measures 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" ans is in great condition.

The second piece (not signed) in this lot is a great 7" double EP from 1954 of Max and company entitled "Jazz on the Campus ltd Volume One" by Max Kaminsky and his Dixieland Bashers (RCA 45 EPEJB-3003). Condition of the records and the gatefold jacket are both VG+++. Liner notes by George T. Simmons, editor of Metronome magazine.

Kaminsky's long career as a side man included stints with Eddie Condon, Bud Freman, Red Nichols, Benny Carter, Mess Mezzrow, Tommy Dorsey, The Clambake Seven, Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, Pee Wee Russell, James P. Johnson, Bobby Hackett and even Charlie Parker if you believe his memoirs!

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
