About Me

My grandfather Grant L. Piburn built a guitar for Mr. Durham in the early '30s. He took it to Fairyland park in Kansas City where he was playing with Benny Motin. Mr. Motin payed my grandfather for the guitar which was advance pay. I wonder if Mr. Durham's family may have that guitar or any pictures of it?

Hi - I would love to include this information in Volume II.
"Swingin' The Blues - The Virtuosity of Eddie Durham" Volume 1, is released. Today only - the $39.99 hardcover is $14.25, due to an Amazon glitch, excluding their and my percentage. So I'm giving the opportunity to obtain this so cheaply only to my loyal DurhamJazz.com Members. The price was supposed to update last night, so no guarantee it's still $14.99. COLLECTIBLE BOOKCOVER artist Chuck Frazier, formerly of Marvel Comics! Order now (or order another one as a gift) because this won't happen again: Go to the www.DurhamJazz.com homepage - or click: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08SMP5NHM?pf_rd_r=P3CQG80T3T3M

Do you have any idea what type of a guitar it was? How many strings? Eddie was with Bennie Moten 1929-1932. You would have more chance of having or finding a picture of that in your family effects... I'm SURE your grandfather must have taken a photo of it before selling it...
