Billie Holiday Etc Signed Pages/ Signatures -- Jsa Coa For Sale
Excellent and bold autographs of jazz legends Billie Holiday and clarinetist Artie Shaw. Shaw signed Holiday as his band's vocalist in 1938, becoming the first white bandleader to hire a full-time African-American female singer to tour the segregated South, though short-lived, as Holiday was continually racially heckled by the audience throughout their tour. Here, the jazz impresarios sign a leaf of an autograph book: ''Billie Holiday'' in black ink and ''Sincerely Artie Shaw'' in pencil. With ''Mon. Apr. 19 / Joy Land 1937'' at bottom right, presumably where the autographs were garnered. Detached autograph leaf measures 5.5'' x 4'', with two additional signatures on verso: ''Ray Keating'' and what appears to be ''Bert Nisbet''. Some minor foxing and toning throughout. With JSA COA. Very good condition.
