On further research, there was a group called "Willie Smalls and the Willie Smalls Singers" cited as an inspiration to this man [external link]
Not sure if this helps!
Willie Smalls and the Modern Men's Social Club in Manhattan, New York.
Does anyone have information about this photo?
I found this photo and a few more in an automobile that was junked for scrap. Does anyone know anything about the Modern Men's Social Club or Willie Smalls? I believe he played the horn with various bands.
