Articles about Elizalde in the Los Angeles Times in 1926

by Albert Haim

Interesting and a weird one (Jazz played in China 4000 years ago). Elizalde had something in common with Roger Wolfe Kahn(both came fro millionaire families), and Bix (good relationships with their mothers). I thank Nick for kindly sending scans of these fascinating, early documents.

In the 1950s, my wife worked for an insurance company on Olive Street.

6th Street looking west at Olive Street. At right is the Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Co. building. Pershing Square is at close right. In the distance is the Jonathan Club.

Note the connection to Whiteman. According to Rayno, Whiteman met Elizalde in San Francisco on Feb 4, 1926. Whiteman's comment after hearing Elizalde's impromptu concert: "I think he will go far in the world of music." Accurate prediction. Whiteman had impeccable musical acumen: he recognized a good musician when he heard one.
