1926 QRS Advert for "Real Blues" Recordings
By Robbie Rhodes

MMDer Bob Pinsker has been busy researching materials for Mike Meddings
and his fine web site at
Bob found a very interesting QRS advert announcing "Recent Recordings
that are Real Blues", and which names Jelly Roll Morton, among other
familiar composers, as a Q.R.S. recording artist.  The ad is from the
Chicago Defender, 27th November 1926, page 7.

I asked Mike about the relationship between Morton and J. Lawrence Cook,
since I've heard that Morton was not liked by all musicians, although
they respected his talent.  Mike replied, "J. Lawrence Cook never met
Morton although he did admire him.  JLC was responsible for creating the
transcriptions of Morton piano solos in the late 1940's.  He had been
assigned to do this by Roy Carew."

Thanks to Bob and Mike for sharing the advert image with MMD; I'll place
it at the MMD Pictures site,

Robbie Rhodes
