"Crazy Blues", written by Perry Bradford and peformed by Mamie Smith, is considered the first blues recording -- a recording that started a craze for the blues that lasted into the 1930's.

"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.
