June 13 sale features hundreds of jazz records and vintage music equipment


Queens, NY (June 6, 2015) – Lucky Rabbit Estate Sales announces the staging of a once-in-a-lifetime collectibles sale, featuring items from the estate of legendary jazz musician Milt Hinton and his wife Mona.

The sale will be held on Saturday, June 13th, 2015  at 173-05 113th Avenue, Jamaica, Queens beginning at 9:00 am. Collectors will be able to choose from hundreds of jazz records which belonged to the late bass player who enjoyed a long, successful career spanning several decades. The collection includes mid-century modern furniture and furnishings, vintage posters, vintage keyboards, stereo equipment and a guitar which was likely played by the seasoned musician. An antique typewriter collection belonging to Mona Hinton, as well as antique iron and toasters are also on sale, in addition to several small items.

“We are pleased to have the distinct honor of representing the estate of Jazz legend Milt Hinton. His stellar career is well known among jazz enthusiasts, in addition to his reputation as an accomplished photographer whose work was highly acclaimed. This sale is a collector’s dream,” says Lucky Rabbit Co-owner, Paul Dunn.

Milt “The Judge” Hinton began his jazz career in the 1920's and, in his heyday, was highly regarded as the Dean of jazz bass players. During his career, he performed alongside a long list of legendary jazz artists including Freddie Keppard, Zutty Singleton, Jabbo Smith, Erskine Tate, and Art Tatum. Hinton also featured on numerous recordings with Benny Carter, Billie Holiday and Teddy Wilson among others, and toured extensively with Louis Armstrong, Pearl Bailey and Bing Crosby.

Hinton was also well known for his photography and amassed a collection of more than 60,000 images during his lifetime. His work was published in two books as well as major periodicals, and appeared in several documentary films. Milt and Mona Hinton were married for fifty-seven years. He died in 2000.
