"That McShann Rhythm Section!"

Down Beat photo with caption, "That McShann Rhythm Section!", ca. 1941. The caption reads, "New York - Here they are, beating it out at the Savoy in Harlem. Jay McShann (at the piano) and his rhythm section include Leonard Enois, guitar; Eugene (Pops) Ramey, bass, and Gus Johnson, drums. Playing the Savoy last month, McShann and his barrelhouse Kansas City crew reportedly "carved" Lucky Millinder's band right off the bandstand. The McShann's Confessin' the Blues is the biggest-selling Decca sepia series discing in history.
