ARVELL SHAW
B/w full length photo of Arvell Shaw playing bass in a tux with Louis Armstrong's All-Stars, signed with his "Best Wishes"
Inscribed photograph signed "'Best Wishes/Dell/Arvell/Shaw" in blue ink. B/w, 8x10 overall, 7½x8½ image, one surface. Captioned: "ARVELL SHAW featured with/LOUIS ARMSTRONG/Esquire All Stars". Photo by Associated Booking Corp. Bassist and perennial sideman Shaw (1923-2002) is probably best known for his long association with Louis Armstrong. He played tuba in high school, but switched to bass, and played with Fate Marable in 1942 before serving in the U. S. Navy for three years. Shaw joined Louis Armstrong's last big band (1945-1947) and was one of only two members to be retained as a member of the Louis Armstrong All-Stars (1947-1950). He rejoined Satchmo in 1952, after taking time off to study music, and toured the world with him until 1956. Shaw also played with Armstrong from 1962 and 1964, as well as a few other times in the 1960s. He also worked at CBS with Russ Case, was a member of the Teddy Wilson Trio and played the Brussels World Fair with Benny Goodman in 1958. Shaw freelanced in New York after the 1960s until his death. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Pen skipped while writing signature, which has low contrast but is legible. Edges are lightly discolored. Light impressions and scratches on image (not visible head-on). Otherwise in fine condition.
