Stapled, white and green magazine with black titles and B&W portrait of Ma Rainey. The same portrait in color is on p. 18.The magazine has some light wear and aging/toning with a small slit on the bottom fold of the spine. One rough spot near center of spine where a mailing label (perhaps) was removed. Overall, this is a solid VG copy. The true importance of this issue is the material on Blues singer, Ma Rainey by Thomas Fulbright. Fulbright acted in traveling shows and carnivals with Rainey. His reminiscences were use by Sandra Lieb in her book on Rainey, but Lieb uses Fulbright's essay for her own purposes rather than for what the essay actually says and implies.This is a primary source articls on the great Georgia singer along with Fulbright's painting of her and a partial discography. The issue also has articles on Eddie Lang, trombonists, record reviews and news and much more. Great British jazz magazine from the 1950's. Good information on Rainey is hard to come by. ; Vol. 9, No. 3; Color and B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 36 pages
