These are some records that I came across while processing the Jackie Jocko/Joe Peters Collection! The album "Like Wow" was released on Wynne Records, and "Mr. Excitement" Jackie Jocko Coast to Coast, released by Strand Records. This album contains a picture of Foster's Supper Club, which is now the King's Court on Delaware and Huron. There is another LP in the collection, "Come Travel with Me" from Berman Records, but sadly there is no album cover.
Here is a collection of cassette tapes and digital video cassettes that have been collected over the years of Jackie Jocko and Joe Peters performances. There are many cassettes of performances, celebrations, and some interviews. The bulk of this collection, that I organized alphabetically, is from the 1990's and 2000's, but some cassettes go back to the 1970's.
Here is Jackie Jocko's personally transcribed sheet music. While I found literally hundreds of sheet music transcriptions Jackie and Joe purchased throughout the years - there are dozens of these personally transcribed which I organized in a separate folder. This song "You Wanna Bet" from Sweet Charity, is an example of one of these. These copies were smaller, with the edges cut off so that Jackie could grip the pages more easily and the music is transcribed in larger font to make it easier to see in those dimly lit nightclubs and lounges.
Here is a lyric sheet for "Things are Swingin'" that Jackie Jocko used. These sheets of handwritten lyrics are quite small, around 3 x 7 inches. These must have been "quick reference" lyric cards while Jackie and Joe were performing.
Here is some of the boxes and containers for the collection. The two green containers on the top shelf hold Jackie and Joe's LP and 7-inch/single vinyl collection. The two boxes contain the published sheet music, alphabetized, and song books. The expandable folder contains the alphabetized handwritten transcribed sheet music, an example of which is shown in another photograph.
