    Description

    Woody Herman Two Window Cards (One Signed). By the mid-1930s, Woody Herman had taken up clarinet and was leading his own band. Thanks to radio broadcasts from New York City's Roseland Ballroom and his hit record with Decca, "Woodchopper's Ball", Woody became one of the nation's most popular bandleaders. By 1944, Herman decided to change the sound of his band. Rather than play merely for the dancers, he decided to make his group a leader in the Progressive Jazz Movement. From 1960 through the 1980s, Woody Herman had one of the few touring big bands, and frequently recruited his musicians from colleges across the country. Woody Herman did as much for jazz by furthering careers of young musicians as any other artist who ever lived. Two cards are offered in this lot. The first is vintage and signed by Herman over his image. Pinholes are at each corner. The second, unsigned card advertises one of Woody's bands from the 1970s. It shows normal age wear, and it appears that the bottom of this card has been trimmed. Pinholes appear at each corner. A wonderful two-card lot. Accompanied by COA from Jazz and Big Band expert Larry Rafferty.
