Many of the Sidemen of the Big Band Era
A great sideman could make or break a band, but...

Who, Played for Who?

Leaders, Sidemen, Singers, Arrangers

A reasonably comprehensive list of those connections, although many have no doubt been lost to history.
Not necessarily in chronological order.  Dbl. spaced entries not yet thoroughly researched.
Real names or secondary instruments in parens.  Nicknames in quotation marks.
Musician listed first. Bandleaders they played for after the colon. Only last name listed for the most familiar leaders.
Most are listed only if they played for the band & not if they only played a session or two on recordings.
The page is a continuing work in progress...enjoy...
