McKinney's Cotton Pickers were an African American jazz band in Detroit, Michigan led by William McKinney. Between 1927 and 1931, they were one of the most popular African-American bands in the country. Many of their records for Victor were bestsellers. In 1927, Fletcher Henderson's arranger and saxophone player Don Redman was invited to become the Cotton Pickers' musical director. Trumpeter John Nesbitt helped Redman with arrangements and rehearsals.
