RAY McKINLEY
Black and white with brown hue publicity photograph of Ray McKinley playing the drums.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To 'Stick'/Gratefully/Ray McKinley". B/w with brown hue, 8x10 overall, image 7½x8¾ (one surface). Captioned at lower margin: "Ray McKinley/Featured with/Jimmy Dorsey and his Orchestra". Drummer, bandleader and singer Ray McKinley (1910-1995) was a driving force behind both Jimmy Dorsey's big band (1935-1939) and Glenn Miller's American Band of the Allied Expeditionary Forces (during WWII). McKinley, who recorded with Dorsey, Miller and Benny Goodman, among others, was co-leader of a band with trombonist Will Bradley (1939-1942) and headed several of his own groups, including "Swing Shift", culled from Miller's musicians during WWII. In 1956, McKinley was commissioned by Miller's widow to reincarnate a Glenn Miller Orchestra. The group had a successful tour to Iron Curtain countries in 1957 and continued to tour the U.S. until 1966. McKinley later joined yet another Glenn Miller Orchestra (fronted by Buddy De Franco) in 1972. Creased at blank corners. ¼-inch tear at right blank margin. Slightly soiled at lower blank margin. Fine condition.
