DescriptionComplete 24-Print Portfolio. The entire portfolio includes all the portraits detailed previously, plus the following: 1) Benny Carter (1907- 2003), a Swing alto saxophonist and composer who had one of the longest and most productive careers in the history of Jazz. He worked continuously, at the top of the field, from 1928 until he passed away in 2003. 2) Wilbur and Freeman featured together. 3) Ralph Sutton (b. 1922), a Stride pianist, and considered one of the greatest Stride pianists of the post-World War II era. Along with his contemporaries Dick Hyman and Dick Wellstood, he has kept this important style alive for today’s audiences. 4) Vic Dickenson (1906-1984), a Dixieland and Swing trombonist who played with such Jazz giants as Benny Carter, Count Basie, Sidney Bechet, Wild Bill Davidson and Bobby Hackett. 5) Willy “the Lion” Smith (1897-1973), an unparalleled master of the Stride piano and considered one of the “big three” of Stride, alongside his fellow legends, James P. Johnson and Fats Waller. Among his many admirers and protegees was Duke Ellington.
The entire collection of famed Jazz musicians is a treasure any Jazz enthusiast would covet. The lot also includes the original red canvas portfolio to hold the pieces, all of which are signed by the artist.
