Bunk remembered: “Tony Jackson started playing piano by ear in Adam Olivier’s tonk on the corner of Amelia and Tchoupitoulas. ”53 They also played together in Adam Olivier’s band. This is very likely to have been before 1904, when Tony Jackson began touring with the Whitman Sisters, returning from time to time to New Orleans. ”54 While we cannot be certain that this William Johnson was Bunk, we can be sure that this is the piano player Tony Jackson.

For the book, he interviewed Bunk Johnson. Bunk mistakenly believed that the Robert Charles Riot took place in 1895 rather than July 1900. He said that Bolden was playing with Billy Peyton and “Big Eye” Louis Nelson at the time of the Riot, and that he had left university a year earlier in 1894; he believed that the beginnings of syncopated music also dated from the same year as the riots. 42 This explains the anomaly in Bunk’s dating of events.

Bunk made clear that his school was Baptist, and it was “back of ” New Orleans University. The Robinson fire insurance map of 1883 shows a school on Constance Street between Leontine and Valmont. This is directly behind, although many blocks, from New Orleans University. 34 Given that it is likely Bunk attended school until around 1899 (or later), this is probably not Bunk’s school.
