Description: 

A member of the McCoy side of the long and infamous Hatfields and McCoys feud, Clyde McCoy was nine years old when he moved with his family from Kentucky to Ohio. He picked up the trumpet there and blossomed into a Dixieland Jazz great whose popularity as a performer and band leader spanned seven decades. McCoy pioneered the use of the growling, wah-wah mute featured in his signature 1930 song "Sugar Blues." He was co-founder of Down Beat magazine in 1935. He wears a serious expression in this portrait.
