The Southeast Missourian   Google News Archive Search


Fate Marable led many bands on the Mississippi river boat lines, which served as a training ground for many important figures in the early history of jazz. He played both the calliope and piano. His only recording for the Okeh label was made in 1924. This newspaper clipping is from the September 15, 1931 edition of the Southeast Missourian.
