Mr Jazz Himself
1917 - Words & Music by Irving Berlin

This one will fool you, it looks a little like Benny Goodman but it isn't. It may be a caricature of the person who wrote the song. The two women on the cover are the Watson Sisters, who haven't been heard from since. This sheet is a good example of the use of the word jazz, prior to the first acknowledged jazz recording.
