I don't believe there is one. In fact, a chronological slang thesaurus is a reference work that needs to be done. But if you can do with later jazz slang, try Cab Calloway's _New Cab Calloway's Hepsters Dictionary,_ Dan Burley's _Handbook of Harlem Jive,_ and the glossary in Mezzrow & Wolfe's _Really the Blues._ Jesse Sheidlower Random House Reference
