    Description

    George "Pee Wee" Erwin (1913-1981). Played trumpet in the Dixeland and Swing styles. John Falter was a musician himself, and in 1926, he played in the house band of the Gehling Theater in Falls City along with Pee Wee Erwin. Falter's love of jazz and his insight into the form sings with the feeling expressed in these prints. These jazz portraits successfully capture the immediacy and vibrancy of his friend's playing. Signed by the artist.
