Reminiscing with Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake
Robert Kimball (au); William Bolcom (au)
Recounts the lives & music of singer-lyricist-bandleader Noble Sissle (1889-1975) & ragtime pianist-composer Eubie Blake (1883-1983). Their 57-year partnership began in 1915, when Broadway beckoned with a wealth of opportunity: thriving theater companies performed vaudeville, revue, musical comedy, & operetta to enthusiastic audiences. This book captures all of the optimism & vibrancy of early 20th-cent. black performers & musicians. In 1921, Sissle & Blake’s breakthrough musical, “Shuffle Along,” brought authentic ragtime & jazz dancing to the Broadway stage for the first time -- a combination that opened up new avenues in musical theater for black & white performers alike. Photos, theater posters, playbills, sheet music, & reviews.
