A host wearing a captain's hat, smiles and speaks into a microphone that he holds in his right hand as he stands in the center of the stage for the Statesmen of Jazz performance in Boca Raton, Florida, for the Swing & Jazz Preservation Society of Florida, Inc. at 7:30 p.m. on May 16, 2000. The date, "5 16 '00"," is imprinted on the lower right-hand of the photograph by the camera. Alto saxophone player, Jerry Dodgion, grins as he stands farthest left in the photograph. Next to the left is George Masso, who grins as he stands holding his trombone by the tuning slide. On the left side of the photograph, Claude "Fiddler" Williams is bent over toward the back of the stage in front of the piano and holding his fiddle with his right hand. Between Claude and the host, David "Fathead" Newman, looks toward the host as he speaks. He holds his tenor saxophone down by his side.
