Albert Wynn

(July 29th 1907 - May 1 1973)

Albert Wynn was born in New Orleans but grew up in Chicago where he began his professional career as a trombonist. He made his first appeared on record in 1926 backing Ma Rainey and in 1927 would play and record in St. Louis with Charlie Creath. Wynn also worked with Earl Hines's band briefly in 1928 before assembling a group of his own. Later that same year he joined "Sam Wooding's Orchestra" on their European tour and didn't return to the U.S. until 1932 when he would live in New York for a short time before going back to Chicago.

Once back in 'The Sates' Wynn was a member of Sidney Bechet's "New Orleans Feetwarmers" for a stint going on to work with the bands' of Jesse Stone, Carroll Dickerson, Richard M. Jones, and the "Earl Hines Orchestra" once again. During the late 1930's and early '40's Albert played in the big band of Fletcher Henderson and the short lived assembly of Jimmie Noone. Settling into semi-retirement Albert Wynn ran a Chicago record store and enjoined his final professional band work as a member of "Franz Jackson's Original Jazz All-Stars" (1956-1960) and the "Gold Coast Jazz Band" (1960 -1964).
