Gatsby's Last Swim


Notes

"Gatsby shouldered the mattress and started for the pool. Once he stopped and shifted it a little, and the chauffeur asked him if he needed help, but he shook his head and in a moment disappeared among the yellowing trees."

A collage of fragments and found objects (mostly) from around 1922. Rags, blues, vaudeville numbers, Edison Diamond Discs, shimmies, foxtrots, carnival sideshows, and modernist jazz pastiches, from Maurice Ravel to Mamie Smith and the Brox Sisters.
