Small black and white photo with rare signature of the cornet player
Photograph signed: "Best wishes/Roy Fox". As a nightclub performer in Los Angeles, Roy Fox (1901-1982) walked among the guests, playing softly so as not to drown out their conversations. This talent earned him the moniker, "the whispering cornetist." Leading his own bands and soloing with other orchestras, Fox performed live, on record, and in his own radio show. He played for films in the early days of talking films. Moving to England in 1930, he became a major star there, performing on the BBC and giving a command performances for the Kings of England and Belgium. Slightly soiled. Light contrast. Otherwise, fine condition.
