Most widely known for leading the home band at the 3rd and final edition from the Eddie Condon membership, Ed Polcer is a good Dixieland (or Chicago jazz) soloist and an excellent ensemble participant. He examined at Princeton School and, after graduating in 1958, performed at Ryan’s and various other New York night clubs while pursuing a profession beyond music. In 1969, Polcer became a member of Crimson Balaban’s group, getting co-leader in 1975. The cornetist, who caused Benny Goodman (1972), Jane Harvey, and Cathy Chamberlain, is a well-known body at jazz celebrations and traditional jazz festivals in the past few years. Polcer could be noticed in excellent type on an record he led for Jazzology in 1982 and on A Salute to Eddie Condon (a 1993 concert released with the Nagel-Heyer label).
