Ray Bauduc, Drummer
I recognized the logo on the drum as being from the Bob Crosby Orchestra. A little bit of research, and I was able to ID the drummer as Ray Bauduc. Bauduc was born in 1906, in New Orleans, Louisiana, he died in 1988. During the thirties and forties, Bauduc played drums for the Bob Crosby Orchestra, and the band within a band, Bob Crosby and the Bobcats. He also played with The Original Memphis Five, had his own band and worked with people like Jack Teagarden.
