Sol Yaged was a prolific sideman in traditional circles having played and recorded with Jack Teagarden and Henry "Red" Allen as well as a short stint as a member of the Zoot Sims/Al Cohn Septet. This is his first solo recording ("It Might as Well Be Swing" Herald HLP 0103 mono deep groove) and is signed by the whole band except the drummer who apparently COZY COLE was standing in for that night - and Cole has signed the album as well!

Cole is obviously the most significant autograph here. Talk about prolific, Cole's credits include; Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Benny Carter, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, Blanche Calloway, Jack Teagarden, Earl Hines, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton - and he even opened a drum school with Gen Krupa in 1957! One of the most significant drummers in the history of jazz!

The vinyl is in vg- condition, the jacket is in good shape except for a split along the top (all other seems are strong) and a general yellowing from age. There is no writing on the jacket other than the autographs.

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
