    A PERSISTENT curiosity of this
department is why America,
the nursery of jars, has not come
forward with a
Lou » Reid

Ing in the Hollywood gold fields
that It is unlikely any such work
will be forthcoming roon. Thus,
what jazz laurel* the Met can
claim are the alien contribution of
the German, Kvenck. The latter's
opus. "Jonny Spielt Auf,’' was a
Jazz opera, but to feeble was its con*
ception of what America knows as
jazz that it was prompt

performances. It hnsfl
never been revived. V

We would like to tee*

“Stormy Weather” is E
one of the great fata

and Hatty Kerri, IV. I'.
Handy, Dyke Filington,
Ferde Grate try their
hands at an opera. And, perhaps,
Koark Bradford or John Dos Bas
sos or Varhel Lindsay, or Carl
Sandburg—someone who knows the
comedy cs writ as puthos of the jazz
age—might Ic induced to fashion
the libretto, weaving the fabric of
restless j.rt sent-day American civi
lization into a new operatic form.
At le-st, eu:h a musical work
would be wholly and itiefutabiy
American. It might be the means of
breaking down some of the snobbish
dependence upj.n foreign operatic
tradition. V/e do jarz bitter than
ve do any other musical form. In
deed, we lead the world in jazz—in
melody, in fertility of rhythm, color
and variety of instrumentation, but
we have yet to put it upon the
pcuidtal of national culture.
The concert hall continues to find
room for new ja« written in toe
li itlnow manner — compositions
labelled '‘concerto," with special at
• • nlion paid to French horus, oboes
e id bassoons.
Eventually. America will discover
a Mark Twain of jazz—some melody

Passing of ths
Comic 8ong
The favor of the comic
. song with the public
• seems lo have dlsap
' peered. Perhaps it is
due to because there are
few singing comedians
left. With the passing
of such men as Ray
mond Hitchcock, Bam
Bernard, Lew Dock•
stader, Eddie Foy, Jeff
lie Angelis, all of whom
* used to pay good prices
l for ditties, the com ,c
i song industry went in o
a decline. WJien these
comedians were floa ••

t nes as ‘‘Who Paid the
Rent lor Mrs. Rio Van

Place to Co,” “Fammany” “Ever,
body li'or/.-* but f ather" and to on.
In so me, instancer, a good comic
song spelled the. difference between
success cud failure for a show.
