Among the best violinists from the pre-bop period, Eddie South was an excellent technician who all, were it all not for the general racism of that time period, would probably have already been a high classical violinist. A kid prodigy, South graduated from your Chicago Music University. Since traditional positions weren’t open to dark violinists within the 1920s, South discovered to try out jazz (helped away by Darnell Howard). In the first to middle-’20s, he worked well in Chicago with Jimmy Wade’s Syncopators, Charles Elgar, and Erskine Tate. South’s 1928 stop by at European countries (where he analyzed in the Paris Conservatoire) produced a deep impression within the violinist, especially his stop by at Budapest; down the road, he would frequently use gypsy melodies like a basis for jazz improvising. In 1931, South came back to Chicago, where his regular music group included the youthful bassist Milt Hinton. In 1937, he went to Paris and experienced the chance to record with Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Nevertheless, South never had a major discovery commercially in his profession. He did focus on radio and tv, but spent the majority of his existence in comparative obscurity, gigging in NY, LA, and specifically Chicago. Eddie South’s early recordings (covering 1927-1941) have already been reissued on a set of Classics CDs. In old age he documented for Chess and Mercury, and in addition produced a final arranged released by Trip.
