GLEN GRAY and PEE WEE HUNT
The saxophonist/director and trombonist/singer of the Casa Loma Orchestra sign a small sheet.
Signatures: "Glen Gray", "PeeWee Hunt", 3¼ x 2. The Casa Loma Orchestra, formed in 1927, is considered by many the first "swing band." It featured fast-paced numbers like "Casa Loma Stomp" and "Maniac's Ball", whose complex arrangements demanded skilled musicians. The band was very popular in the early 1930s; its style widely imitated Saxophonist GLEN GRAY preferred playing his instrument, but took over as director at the insistence of other band members. He retired in 1950. PEE WEE HUNT (1907-1979) was the band's trombonist and good humored vocalist for many years (1929-1943). After a stint in the merchant marine and as a disc jockey, Hunt formed his own Dixieland band and had a hit record, "Twelfth Street Rag" (1948). Slightly toned on right edge. Perforated on left edge. Vertical crease down center. Soiled on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
