Autograph Note Signed: "To Mrs. White, best wishes/ Sid Philips" in blue ink. Unidentified Signature in green ink on verso. 7¼x6¼. Dated on August 1954. Isador Simon "Sid" Phillips (1907-1973) was an English jazz clarinetist, bandleader and arranger. He was born in London and learned violin and piano as a child, and during his teens he played reeds as a member of his brother's European band. He got into the music industry as a publisher and director for the Edison-Bell Gramophone Company. In 1930 Isador began writing arrangements for Bert Ambrose and joined Ambrose's ensemble in 1933, where he remained until 1937. In the late 1930s Phillips played in the United States on radio and freelance in clubs. He served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, then put together his own quartet in 1946 and wrote several pieces for the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He led a Dixieland jazz band of his own formation from 1949, and his sidemen included George Shearing, Colin Bailey, Tommy Whittle and Kenny Ball. However, Philip's first recordings under his own name were made in 1928, and he continued to record as a leader into the 1970s. In 1937 through 1938, a number of his recordings were issued in the US through a contract he signed with Irving Mills and issued on Mills' Variety label, as well as Vocalion, Brunswick and Columbia labels. Isador Simons Phillips died in Chertsey in 1973. Edges lightly worn. Tape residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
