SHANGHAI-LEKSIKON
The Birth Of The Blues

Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra (vocals: Jack Fulton), 1926.

Fra Broadway musicalen "George White's Scandals Of 1926"

(B.G. DeSylva / Lew Brown / Ray Henderson)

Paul Whiteman var en af sin tids største jazzmusikere og bar tilnavnet ”The King of Jazz”. Sangen The Birth of the Blues var i flere år Paul Whitemans signaturnummer:

 

Oh! They say some people long ago

were searching for a different tune.

One that they could croon

as only they can.

 

They only had the rythm so

they started swaying to and fro.

They didn’t know just what they had

and that is how the blues really began.

 

They heard the breeze in the trees

singing weird melodies.

And they made that

the start of the blues.

 

And from a jail came the wail

of a down hearted frail.

And they played that

as part of the blues.

 

From a whippoorwill out on a hill

they took a new note.

Pushed it through a horn

‘til it was born into a blue note.

 

And then they nursed it, rehearsed it,

and gave out the news

that the southland

gave birth to the blues!

Hvad gør man i en by med et vildt natteliv og alt, alt for mange enlige hvide herrer? Man priser sig lykkelig over det store udbud af smukke danseværtinder i alle farver og prisklasser.

Danseværtinder for enhver smag

Uanset om De er til kinesere, japanere, koreanere eller russere, kan Deres vildeste ønsker for en glad nat gå i opfyldelse. Ja, selv franske, engelske eller amerikanske kvinder kan fremskaffes, men de er naturligvis noget dyrere. Til gengæld får De så høje, lyse, elegante veninder gennem den lange, glade nat. Men naturligvis foretrækker nogen de små og smalle lokale nips. Vi dømmer ikke. Smag og behag er heldigvis forskellig.

Friske på det hele

Ét er sikkert, ens for alle danseværtinderne er: De er ikke puritanere! De danser gerne med Dem. De drikker gerne vin eller gin eller hvad De måtte ønske. Mod en beskeden ekstrabetaling følger danseværtinderne endda gerne med Dem videre til andre af nattelivets glæder. Og skulle uheldet være ude, er byen heldigvis fuld af andre kvinder.
