Charlie Parker Thelonious Monk Louis Armstrong W C Handy Louis Jordan Autograph Signed "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't (Ma' Baby)" 1944 10" 78 RPM Single Record
The 78 rpm 10" single "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't (Ma' Baby)" b/w "G I Jive" signed on the paper sleeve in pencil by, clockwise from upper right, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Louis Jordan and W C Handy. This was released on the Decca label in 1944. The vinyl record shows a number of scratches which I imagine would affect play. The signatures are believed to have been obtained at either the recording studio or music store of guitarist Harry Volpe. Harry's guitar center was on West 48th Street in New York, his recording studio in Jackson Heights, Queens.
