    Pee Wee Erwin, Bob Wilber, Kenny Davern, Flip Phillips, Johnny Best, Ed Polcer, Carl Fontana, and Bob Havens, Autographed Al White Silver Print, Group of 2 (undated).
    Pee Wee Erwin takes center stage in these two photos. Al White typed this note on a manila envelope for the photos, "I thought these two pictures of the great trumpet player, Pee Wee Erwin, were interesting because on the 'out chorus' of a tune, he had a way of getting the band to modulate into another key by using a hand signal. In the picture with Kenny Davern (clarinet) and Bob Havens (trombone), he is holding up five fingers which means to go into the key of D-flat. In the picture with Bob Wilber (clarinet), Kenny Davern (soprano sax), Flip Phillips (tenor sax), John Best (trumpet), Ed Polcer (trumpet), and Carl Fontana (trombone), the four fingers mean to go into A-flat." Each 8" x 10" silver print is in Excellent condition. From the Al White Jazz autograph archive.
