    Description

    Stuff Smith and Cozy Cole Signed Jazz Window Card, plus Claude Hopkins Signed Jazz Window Card. Stuff Smith was one of the first great Jazz violinists, and he was a brilliant musician who has been tremendously underrated. Cozy Cole, who has also signed this window display card, is regarded as one of the greatest drummers Jazz has ever produced. He helped propel such bands as Cab Calloway, Lionel Hampton, and Louis Armstrong to fame. Cozy Cole recorded a million-selling record, Topsy, in 1958. This card is signed by both Stuff Smith (twice) and Cozy Cole, and it should be noted that Cole has signed "Cosy Cole", making this his rarer, earlier signature. Pinholes at corners do not detract from this rare piece. Claude Hopkins led one of the best swing bands of the early 1930s. All the white bands that came through New York City envied his ensemble. Hopkins, born in 1903, got his first taste of fame as the intermission pianist at the well-known 52nd Street Jazz Club, Jimmy Ryan's. The innovative pianist had a long and successful career. This card, done over a purple background, shows the leader as well as an artist's rendition of his whole band, and Claude has signed the card on his image. Pinholes at corners would matte or frame out. A rare signature.
