Something for the weekend.  All of No Man’s Land is Ours (1919) by James Reese Europe.  One of the most talented of rag time composers, and a jazz pioneer, Europe during World War I led the regimental band of the famed 369th Infantry, “Harlem Hellfighters”, who earned accolades fighting under French command.  The future was bright for him, a future that came to a sudden end when he died from a stabbing by one of his drummers on May 9, 1919.  He is buried in Arlington.
