Sidney Martin introduced me to Mister Jelly Hoi. Charles Smith has smiled on the project all the way from the recordĀ­ings to galley proof. Dr. Harold Spivacke gave official leave to make the records. A rather embarrassed, but courageous Kansas secretary transcribed the L. C. series.
Had there been no talks with Creole Paul Dommguez? Leonard Bechet, John A. St. Cyr, Big-Eye Louis Nelson, Omer Simeon, and Bunk Johnson, 1 would never have cared to finish the book. Henry Monette, Amede Colas, and Anita Gonzalez helped to find some lost trails. Courageous Mabel Morton held back nothing and laid the basis for a chapter.
R. J. Amateau did invaluable sleuthing. Hally Wood, Jean Ritchie, and Jean Haydock transcribed miles of tape. Bea Baron, Ronnie Gilbert, Greta Brodie and, especially. Boots Casetta typed and retyped late and long.
Rudi Blesch's advice, counsel, and back files couldn't have oeen dispensed with. Roy Carew has been generous of time and music.
Elizabeth Lomax and Mary Mahoney showed me where I had gone wrong and put me back on the hard road.
To all these, thanks for Mister Jelly Roll and for myself.
