Don Redman

This marker is located on Rt 46 in Piedmont, Mineral County WV at the bridge that crosses into Westernport, MD.

Redman’s best known compositions include “Cherry” (1928), “Gee baby, ain't I good to you” with lyricist Andy Razaf (1929), “Shakin’ the African” (1930), and “Hot and Anxious” (1931). The National Park Service established the Annual Don Redman Heritage Awards & Concert in Harpers Ferry National Park in 2001.

Inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1990
