Slim Bourland and the Jazz Hounds

November 19, 2010

James Roger Bourland Sr
My paternal grandfather, Roger, Sr. was in a combo that played for silent films called “Slim Bourland and the Jazz Hounds.” My father’s sister, Sally, just sent me an old family photo album and I found a picture of him playing the piano. Like me, he learned to play by ear.

This picture isn’t of the Jazz Hounds, or at least I don’t think is it, but it shows my Grandfather’s spirit and what looks like a big smile.
