TitleAll That Jazz
AbstractPhoto and article about the members of the Lincoln High School Marching Band in late 1910s-1930s Kansas City, including Walter Page ("perhaps the most influential bassist in jazz history"), Thamon Hayes, and Harlan Leonard, et al. Photo and description of "Bennie Moten's Radio Orchestra (about 1921)" composed of members and graduates of Lincoln High School. Various other details about early jazz development in Kansas City, etc.
NotesPage 82: "Lincoln [High School] was the only black high school on the Missouri side [circa 1910s-1920s]. And it had a 'post-graduate' program' besides, which allowed students to stay on an extra two or three years to learn a trade. Many musicians stayed on to play with the band as well."
