|Caption||A black and white photograph of Cab Calloway wearing a checked tuxedo and singing into a microphone. Calloway is pictured in the center of the image, both arms bent at the elbow and raised chest high, a conductors baton held in his proper left hand and pointing downwards. His head is tilted slightly to his proper left, his eyes are closed and his mouth open and smiling slightly. The checked tuxedo has high-waisted pleated pants and a tail coat with dark coloured trim at the collar. He wears a white shirt and white bow tie. Behind him and slightly out of focus are seated band members. All wear light coloured suits and most hold their instruments in their hands, not playing. At the back right side, a trumpet player holds an upturned trumpet to play with both hands. Behind the band, a sequined curtain is partially visible where the spotlight on Calloway shines on it. There are no marks or inscriptions, front or back. Date: 1930s. Record ID: nmaahc_2013.237.11.|
