Description DM2000021129:SAED:MUSIC:THEATRE:JUL1955 - Jazz on Wheels! - The morning train from Johannesburg to Durban was turned into a hep train by the Jazz Parade troupe as it swung its way to the coast to jazz up the fans in Durban with singing, dancing, and extra hot cheese-cake by Dolly Rathebe! Not all the songs sung by the troupe on the train were jazzy. Guitarist Billy Roach, his singing wife Mavis and the male star, Gene Williams, settled down to one of those nostalgic numbers sung on train journeys- like 'Sentimental Journey'.
