    Joe Haymes, Tal Henry, and Larry Clinton Signed Window Cards. Joe Haymes had a great ear for talent, but throughout his career, other bandleaders would rob Joe's stable of musicians. It was unfortunate that Joe Haymes never achieved the fame he deserved, but many of the great bandleaders were forever in his debt. This card, in yellow and black has been signed by Haymes at the top right. Small pinholes could be framed or matted out. Tal Henry and his North Carolinians had a brief period of fame in the late 1920s, but within ten years, he had faded into obscurity. This art-deco style card in purple and black features an image of the leader, and Tal has signed at the bottom right. Small pinholes are evident on each corner. Although Larry Clinton played several different instruments, he first gained fame as an arranger for the Casa-Loma Orchestra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. In 1937 Clinton formed his own band. An accomplished pilot, in 1941, Larry Clinton disbanded his group so he could serve as a Lieutenant in the US Air Force. After the war, Larry Clinton never reformed is band, but instead moved to Arizona to become a successful author of Science Fiction novels. This card is signed by Clinton to the right of his image. Attractive with corner pinholes that would matte or frame out. Accompanied by COA from Jazz and Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.
