Meet the Author

Larry F. Kiner has been doing research and compiling discographies since the early 1940s, with special emphasis on the personalities of the pre-1950 era and some of the non-jazz orchestras. Among his books are discographies on Harry Lauder and Nelson Eddy (Scarecrow). Philip R. Evans is a renowned researcher, writer, and consultant on the music and musicians of the bygone era. Al Jolson is first in a trio series with Scarecrow Press. Following will be a bio-discography on Frank Trumbauer (co-authored with Larry Kiner) and a bio-discography on Red Nichols (co-authored with Stan & Steve Hester).
