Hot Jazz for a Cold Winter Day

We have received a trove of sheet music spanning the 1920s through the 1960s.  It’s priced and ready for you to take home.  The best and most beautiful are some Jazz Age pieces, pictured below, which are as priceless for the music and era they document as they are for the artwork on their covers.  We’ve included links so you can hear and enjoy them the way they were meant to be played — by big, bold, brassy bands, jumpy ragtime piano players and crooning vocalists.

We also have some rare sheet music from Sinatra, Elvis, The Shirelles, Earl Grant, Doris Day and lots of others.  You’ll be able to find the rare or fragile music in the display case near the cash register, the others are in our vintage treasure room.

And by the way, we acknowledge with gratitude the people responsible for maintaining the links we posted in the captions below.

1925 - If the tune is anything to go by, it must be a fairly cheerful parting.  Listen here to this beautiful player piano rendition.

1928 - Earl Carroll was a producer whose shows were known for having the most scantily clad showgirls on Broadway.  It's like your mother warned you:  Go outside like that and you're sure to catch a cold.  Listen to the tune here.

This is a 1942 edition of Euday Bowman's famous ragtime tune of 1919.  Listen to Adam Swanson  play it here.  Thanks, Adam.  You're flying over those keys!
