Art Hickman's New York London Five

Art Hickman's New York London Five

Art Hickman's New York London Five, London 1920.  L-R: George Fishberg, Jack Howard, Clarence Gransie, Keith Pitman, George Klein. They made a number of fine records for HMV in 1920-21 and one side for Edison Bell Winner as Jack Howard's Metropolitans. The band had little, if anything, to do with bandleader Art Hickman - the group had been assembled by band contractor Harry A. Yerkes and they 'licensed' the Hickman name, as his records were already well known in England.
