Compositions by Harry Jentes
By Colin Hinz

Marc Cohn wrote about his cousin, Harry Jentes:

> Among his compositions are Rhapsody Rag (1911), California Sunshine
> (1913), Soup and Fish Rag (1913), Bantam Step (1916), The Cat's
> Pajamas (1923), Tricky Trix (1923), Rag-O-Rhythm (1924), Twinkles
> (1925).

Better add "Blooey Blues" to your list, Mark.  I've a recording of it
on a CD compilation titled "Black and White Ragtime Vol. 1", issued
(and currently still in print) by Document Records in the UK, catalogue
no. DOCD-5596.

On the basis of this recording, I'll say you've got a real treat in
store if you manage to find any Jentes rolls.  Please let the MMD know
about any that you manage to track down.

best regards,
