TEDDY WILSON
Rare signature from the important swing and jazz pianist on a black and white publicity headshot, thanking the Opera House Staff
Inscribed photograph signed: "All the best to/the Opera House/Staff, from/Teddy Wilson/Mar 16, 1975", in blue ink, B/w 8x10. Teddy Wilson (1912-1986) was one of the most important pianists of the swing era and was one of the first black pianists to appear prominently with white artists, beginning with his joining the Benny Goodman Trio in 1935. Wilson was often sought after and well respected by his peers in the business, playing piano for several other jazz notables beyond Goodman, including Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald. After years of playing jazz and swing, Wilson ventured out into other musical endeavors, including a teaching position in the 1950's at the prestigious Julliard School. Lightly bowed. Toned. Surface creases, esp. on right margin. Corners worn and creased. Sticker affixed to bottom right margin. Slightly soiled across image. Printing defects from original negative. Ink notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
