in New York

from His Eye Is On the Sparrow, page 199:

I worked my way East after finishing On with the Show. In New York I made some new records, among them "Trav'lin' All Alone," which Kate Smith sang later and Al Jolson did in Wonder Bar. I had the great pleasure and privilege of being accompanied on that recording by James P. Johnson.
