      I can attest to the fact that that's not him on banjo. I recognize the guy

      Looking last night for the Allen Brass Band photograph in Keepnews &
      Grauer Pictorial History of Jazz, I turned to page 218 in my edition to see a
      photograph of Bunk & band at the Stuyvesant Casino, NYC September 28, 1945.
