Rhythm For Sale
Cover in category: 'Non-Fiction' > 'Biography & Autobiography'
The woman in the picture is Louise "Jota" Cook (She moved her stomach like a monkey on a stick. Just like what you would see in a Medicine show), and she was a headline dancer in many Leonard Harper productions. The picture of Ms. Cook is a backstage publicity photo from when she appeared in Harper's "Hot Chocolates'" (1929) on Broadway with Fats Waller & Louis Armstrong where the songs "Ain't Misbehavin" & "Black And Blue" were first introduced. You can view her dancing on one of my video uploads because she dances in the first Black Taking film that Leonard Harper Co-Directed with Oscar Micheaux.
I added the light brown images of the enlarged Saxophone in the front and the piano keys on top to enhance the nightclub flair. Louise "Jota" Cook's imagine is a perfect reflection of a ghost which symbolizes that although those days have gone by the characters within "Rhythm For Sale" live on and come to life within the pages of my book.
