BUCK CLAYTON
Signed b/w publicity photo of Buck Clayton from the waist up and playing the trumpet in a suit and tie
Inscribed photograph signed "To my real good/friend/Milt (Mr. T.)/A wonderful Boss/and friend/Buck Clayton" in green ink. B/w, 8¼x10 overall, 7½x9¼ image, one surface. A dexterous jazz trumpeter with a tart, striking tone, Clayton (1911-1991), born Wilbur Dorsey Clayton, was a bandleader, a soloist for Count Basie's orchestra (1936-1943) and an accompanist for many singers, including Billie Holiday. Clayton's professional career began in the 1930s, when led a band that was based in China, and stretched all the way into the 1980s, when he led a band of Basie sidemen and his own big band. He provided arrangements for Basie as well as Benny Goodman (he appeared in the 1956 biopic The Benny Goodman Story) and Harry James, as well as performing with many notable jazz musicians like Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Tony Parenti and Mezz Mezzrow. Lip and health problems ended his performing career in the late 1960s, but he rejoined the music business in the 1970s as an arranger and bandleader as well as a teacher. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Lightly discolored at top, left and bottom edges; bottom discoloration touches signature. Otherwise in fine condition.
