Eubie Blake & His Orchestra, v. Dick Robertson – My Blue Days Blew Over, Victor 1931
NOTE: James Hubert (“Eubie”) BLAKE (1887 Baltimore, MD – 1983 Brooklyn, NJ) American pianist, composer, lyricist and bandleader of ragtime & jazz music. In age of 7 he received music lessons from an organist from the Methodist church. Eubie’s mother imagined her son’s career as church music performer, however at age 15 he started to play piano at a Baltimore bordell. After WW I Blake joined forces with Noble Sissle to form a "Dixie Duo." In 1921 they wrote the musical Shuffle Along which guaranteed Blake his place in music history. After "Shuffle Along " they collaborated on Chocolate Dandies. The musicals were significant not only for reviving the black musical, but also for helping launch young artists:Josephine Baker and Paul Robeson. In 1970s Blake was one of principle figures of the early jazz revival, giving performances into his nineties. In 1979 the musical Eubie was created from his work.

Corrie, I think when someone managed to live up to his 100 th birthday there are dozens of reason why his exact date of birth can easily disappear in "the mist of ages". E.g. Tamara Lempicka had three or four dates and two places of her birth. And Ava Gardner always was in trouble when she passed borders, for her passport "for some reason" constantly presented a hole burnt just in the place where the date of birth is. And each time the officer complained about the state of her ID, she exclaimed: "oh, sorry! I must have just dropped my cigarette ash in here!". Thank you for a nice Eubie's birthday story!

Delightful post . Eubie lived a most interesting life. You have incorrectly stated the date of his birth year. He was actually born on 7th. February, 1883, and the story goes that on attaining his 100th birthday, he quipped; "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself".
Thank you for sharing.
