"Arizona" was James Reese Europe's first published composition, according to Peter Lefferts bibliography of the musician's works. This is a first edition copy published by Sol Bloom in 1903. I have not been able to determine how Europe came to write the music for this work, though William Estren, the lyricist, wrote for Bert Williams and other African-American performers. This music is important because it initiates the career of Europe, whom Eubie Blake called "the Martin Luther King of music." This copy is in about VG condition. It has some edge, corner and surface wear along with a former owner's name and intials on the front and expected toning/soiling. Please see scan.
