DICK MORGAN and SKEETS HERFURT
Signatures of both as members of Alvino Rey's Orchestra
Photograph signed: "Dick Morgan", "Skeets Herfurt". B/w, 8x10 Captioned in lower margin. ARTHUR "SKEETS" HERFURT (1911-1992) was a jazz sax and clarinet player who performed with the Dorsey Brothers (together and individually, 1934-1939). He was also heard with the bands of Ray Noble, Alvino Rey, and - after service in World War II - with Benny Goodman. As a Hollywood studio musician, he played with Louis Armstrong, Billy May, Stan Kenton and others, and he was a member of Lawrence Welk's TV Orchestra (1979-1982). DICK "ICKY" MORGAN, who derived his nickname from one of his favorite expressions, was an eccentric banjo and guitar player whose act included a replica python. He performed mostly with Ben Pollack's band, but he was the inspiration for Glenn Miller's song "When Icky Morgan Plays the Organ." Corner slightly creased. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
