Description . AUGUST 1953 Ð TALKING TRUMPET Ð NEG 256. SAED:MUSIC:PERSONALITY:DRUM AUGUST 1953 Ð Talking Trumpet Ð When Elijah plays little children follow him in the streets, like the pied piper of Hamelin. Elijah Nkwanyana used to blow on Pumpkin-stalks as a farm-boy. Now heÕs a cabaret star at night clubs! If you met a man wearing red and yellow socks, green and purple boots, a red and black skull cap and carrying a black and white umbrella youÕd say ÒAh! ThereÕs a jazz creature, yes man! HeÕs be talking at his loudest, walking at his peacockest, and talking shop and music. Yes, you wouldnÕt have to learn it. But youÕd meet Elijah, and you wouldnÕt even talk politics to him cause heÕd be so different. (Photograph by Jurgen Schadeberg ©Baileys Archives) NEG 256 FRAME 9
