Lionel Hampton with Joe Wilder: Wendell Phillip Culley

       Instead of saying “Where is Waldo?” I have been saying, “Where is Wendell?”  As I completed a post today on Wendell Culley and the Count Basie Orchestra, I again was given permission to post the following photo on my blog from Monk Rowe through Joe Wilder-Trumpet Player, who will be 90 in February 2012.

Monk Rowe is a professor at Hamilton College and director of the Jazz Archives who has interviewed and researched many jazz artists extensively.  To listen to an interview of Joe Wilder go here.

Monk Rowe also has a wonderful Blog at Jazz BackStory, that may be of interest.
