Not exactly a household name, Echford "Lee" Cooper was a talented guitarist, whose session work revealed a skilled musician who was capable of playing just about anything — at least according to Eddie Boyd, who worked and recorded with him extensively. Thanks to some ace detective work by Bob Eagle and Jim O'Neal, it would appear that Lee Cooper was born around 1924 or ‘25, with the 1930 and 1940 census noting his residence as Lexington, Mississippi. Just five short years later, his photo appeared in the Chicago Defender, listed as a guitarist with the Hi-De-Ho Boys. It was a Jazz group that had been founded in Saint Louis by guitarist Lefty Bates — while he was still in high school — and in 1936, the group moved north to the Windy City, made some records for Decca, and took up a long-standing residency at the Club DeLisa. It seems likely that after Bates had to leave the group to serve in World War II, that it was Lee Cooper who took his place. Our main source of information on Cooper comes f
