Sorry, no etymologies found.
In the parlor Maud Torrence sat down at the organ and began looking through the sheet music on the rack.
The sheet music has "strange fingers of light," and it certainly sounds as if that is what Jerry sings on "Blues For Allah" and on DP17.
She went straight to the stationer's and without browsing bought sheet music for a number of recent tunes by Stephen Foster, a songster about whom she and Monroe held violently differing opinions.
She stared at the sheet music for a song called “Strange Fruit,” the notes meaningless black specks that gave her something to focus on besides Madda’s darkening expression.
Just to add to the confusion, the sheet music spells it "toodle-oo."
By “literature” he means “media that we contemplate and keep,” including recordings, movies, sheet music and whatnot, “which can be nonsequential and par-allel.”
