Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Frank/Best Wishes/Les Brown". Sepia, 8x10 overall, image 7¼x8½ (one surface). Captioned at bottom margin. Bandleader Les Brown (1912-2001) led his jazz oriented dance bands, which included the Les Brown Orchestra and Les Brown and his Band of Renown, for over sixty years. The saxophonist and clarinetist formed his first permanent orchestra in 1938 and had his first big hit with Doris Day's rendition of "Sentimental Journey" in 1944. Three years later, Brown began his association with Bob Hope, making his first tour of military bases in 1950. Brown, who appeared with his talented musicians in several feature films, continued to tour through the 1960s and made occasional appearances in later decades, giving his final performance just five months before his death. Lightly creased at corners. Fine condition.
