[Portrait of Henry Wells, Aquarium, New York, N.Y., ca. Jan. 1947]

1 negative : b&w ; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in.

Caption from Down Beat: Dickie Wells and Henry Wells: There’s justifiable confusion among many people over the Wells boys. Though not otherwise related, both Dickie and Henry play trombone, sing, and travel around in the same better jazz circles. Now, to add to the confusion, they’re both playing in the same orchestra (Sy Oliver’s). Dickie is, of course, the Wells famous for his hot blowing and Henry is the man many consider the finest of all straight ballad singers.
