Bailey and Cowen with Estella Davis, 1922, Photograph

This classy act is well known in vaudeville. It plays the best time and, like all other leaders, use Conn instruments exclusively. We quote excerpts from each of their glowing letters of praise:

"The instruments we just received from Conn are simply wonderful both in construction, tone quality and appearance. They add 100 percent to our act. For the past five years I have admired your saxophones and I am proud to be the owner of one which my fellow artists so much admire." Yours sincerely, LYNN COWAN.

"My Conn Melody C is a beauty and the Artist Special finish is the last word. The tone quality is wonderful, the tuning device a revelation, the adjustment perfect; these combinations of perfection make the playing of a Conn Saxophone a great pleasure. Congratulations. Sincerely yours, ESTELLA DAVIS.
