Biography
Lucius Venable "Lucky" Millinder (August 8, 1910 – September 28, 1966) was an African American rhythm-and-blues and swing bandleader. Although he could not read or write music, did not play an instrument and rarely sang, his showmanship and musical taste made his bands successful. His group was said to have been the greatest big band to play rhythm and blues, and gave a break to a number of influential musicians at the dawn of the rock-and-roll era. He was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in 1986.
