How to act in Hamp’s band (1945)
I’m starting this blog off with a very unusual document from the Otto Flückiger archives: A letter signed by Lionel Hampton to members of his band via Hampton’s booking office in august 1945. The letter contains the “rules and regulations” that have to be followed strictly by all members of Hampton’s band. That is is signed by Hampton does not necessarily mean that he formulated it. Other suspects are Joe Glaser (or someone from his office) or even Lionel Hampton’s wife, Gladys.
