SKF NOTE: An interesting photo, new to me, from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The University’s best guess is this photo of Big Sid Catlett was taken 1945-1950. It’s part of the Dave E. Dexter, Jr. Collection. The University is welcoming more information.
I wrote to tell them this is a photo of Big Sid behind Sonny Greer’s drumset. Perhaps Catlett was subbing for Greer, or sitting in on a Duke Ellington Orchestra appearance.
In any event, this is a cool photo. Thank you, UMKC.
