    Don Redman Signed Window Card. Don Redman was a true Renaissance man of Jazz. He was a pioneering arranger/composer, and he played every instrument in the band. From 1924-1927, he arranged for and played saxophone in the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra. From 1927-1931, Redman was the musical director for the McKinney's Cotton Pickers. In the 1930s and 1940s, he led his own band, and in the early '50s, he was the musical director for singer Pearl Bailey. Don Redman, over a 30-year period, wrote key musical arrangements for such orchestras as Paul Whiteman, Count Bassie, Jimmie Lunceford, Harry James, Louis Armstrong, Isham Jones, and Jimmy Dorsey. This card features a caricature image of the saxophonist next to his name in block letters. Don has signed and inscribed the card next to his image. Don Redman is another elusive autograph, and small pinholes at each corner are the only defects that would easily matte or frame out. Accompanied by COA from Jazz & Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.
