For over fifty years, Wilbur "Buck" Clayton brought his special brand of trumpet magic to audiences around the world. Born in Parsons, Kansas, Clayton was a prominent member of Count Basie's orchestra and he went on tour for the State Department as well. This digital collection from the Miller Nichols Library at the University of Missouri-Kansas City presents over 1500 photographs from this collection documenting Clayton's life and career. Visitors can browse the collection, and there are some great photos of Clayton as a small child and of course, some excellent photos of him collaborating with other jazz legends like Pee Wee Russell, Joe Turner, and Buddy Tate. Visitors with an interest in specific images can use the search feature to look for items using each photograph's details.
