Lucius Venable "Lucky" Millinder (August 8,
1910 – September 28, 1966) was an
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 is a 1986
inductee of the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame.
