“Buddy Bolden’s Dream”
Buddy Bolden (1877-1931), the first Jazz horn player, popular from 1897 to 1907 in New Orleans, aka “King” Bolden never recorded his music (no Jazz cylinder has been found). The 1905 Cadillac featured in this painting, is a Model F 5-passenger touring car. The young Louis Armstrong gazes at the cornet Buddy holds in his hand. Posters advertising the King Bolden Band appear on the delivery wagon in the background.
