About this Item: Condition: Very Good +. Jazz Journal Magazine, London, Vol.4, No.3, March 1951, inscribed and SIGNED in black ink at his photograph on the front wrap by the great Chicago traditional jazz cornetist, Muggsy Spanier. Inscribed "To Art [Stone]", Canadian jazz journalist who obtained the signature in person from Muggsy during his performance at the Savarin Hotel, Toronto in the late 50's. In original pictorial wraps, 10.5" by 8.5", 20pp, plus wraps, vertical mailing fold, neatly punched binder holes to spine edge, age toning to pages, else very good+, tightly staple bound, signature is near fine, clean and without loss. Muggsy Spanier (1906-1967) is generally acknowledged as one of the best of the early white jazz cornetists, associated with the famed Austin High Gang, a group of young West-Chicago jazz musicans which included future luminaries Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Bud Freeman and many other prominent early jazz musicians. Spanier made his first records with the Chicago Rhythm Kings in 1927, a band which included Gene Krupa on drums and after recovering from a near fatal alcohol related illness in 1938, led several small and large bands throughout the 40's, making some fine recordings for the Commodore and Decca labels. From the late 50's until his death in 1967, Muggy led several fine small bands, most notably as a co-leader with the great pianist, Earl Hines. Scarce jazz collectible with the uncommon signature of an early jazz luminary. J1539 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 001539
