In all 8 signatures. Composer JOHN WILLIAMS (b. 1932), nominated for 41 Academy Awards since 1968, won five. Among his dozens of movie scores are Jaws, Superman, Star Wars, E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. He was conductor of the Boston Popos Orchestra from 1980 to 1995. Drummer Carl "CUBBY" O'BRIEN (b. 1946) was the youngest male to audition to become a Mousketeer. The Mickey Mouse Club, which was televised on ABC from 1955-1959, featured 24 youngsters in its first season, including "Cubby", who was often paired with Karen, the youngest female Mouseketeer. The Mousketeers sang, danced, starred in filmed serials, introduced cartoons and provided an audience for the guest stars and talent acts on each hour-long show. Cubby, who also appeared in the Disney film, Westward Ho the Wagons (1956), went on to perform with Lawrence Welk, Spike Jones and the Carpenters. The professional studio drummer also occasionally tours with road productions. NELL CARTER (1948-2003), who found success on the stage, on television, in nightclubs and in feature films, is perhaps best known for her role as sassy, matronly housekeeper Nell on the 1980s sitcom, Gimme a Break (1981-1987). Starting out as a nightclub/cabaret performer, Carter gained national recognition for her performance in the Broadway musical, Ain't Misbehavin', winning a Tony Award in 1978 -- and an Emmy in 1982, when the show was broadcast on television. Her other television work includes roles in Ryan's Hope and The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo (as police sergeant Hildy Jones, 1979-1981), guest appearances on The Tonight Show, television movies, a TV special, Never Too Old to Dream (1986), and a show-stopping appearance on the 65th Annual Academy Awards (1992), where she sang "Never Had a Friend Like Me" from the animated musical, Aladdin. Carter, who had made her film debut in the film adaptation of the hit musical, Hair, also appeared in such films as The Grass Harp (1995) and The Proprietor (1997). BERNARD PURDIE (b. 1939) is a session drummer known for his "Purdie Shuffle". He has played with James Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin, BB King, Joe Cocker and many others, and released solo albums, beginning with Purdie Good (1971). WILBUR BASCOMB, JR. is a celebrated bass player and songwriter who has played with Chuck Berry, BB King, Bo Diddley, Jeff Beck and many others. His father, Wilbur Bascomb, Sr., was a well-known jazz trumpeter. Toned at edges. Lightly frayed at top edge. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
