Memories of a Jazz Journalist - Part Seven - "Errors"

Here is the continuation of Memories of a Jazz Journalist by George A. Borgman.

I have reviewed numerous jazz recordings for the Mississippi Rag. In one review I identified the tune "Cross Your Heart" as "Cross Your Eyes," and in another, "Big Butter and Egg Man" as "Big Brother and Egg Man." The errors got through me, my wife, Janet, an excellent proofreader, and the editors at the Rag.

Here is the tune Cross Your Heart played by Roger Wolfe Kahn and His Orchestra in 1926.
Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five with singer May Alix - Big Butter and Egg Man, recorded in 1926.
