This is a pseudonym for Ed Kirkeby. Kirkeby, who is probably best-remembered for being Fats Waller's manager, became a salesman at Columbia in 1916, and the following year he was assistant recording manager. Kirkeby recorded some of the first jazz at Columbia and in 1920 organized the California Ramblers. Within a year, the band was recording regularly throughout the 1920's. Kirkeby started singing on their records in September of 1926. A few months later Kirkeby (using the pseudonym of Ted Wallace) became a leader on a series of records usually utilizing personnel from the Ramblers. After the Ramblers declined, Kirkeby put a greater focus on his own recordings, recording under such names as Ted Wallace, Ed Kirkeby Wallace, Eddie Lloyd and Eddie Loyd. During 1930-32, Kirkeby directed a countless number of studio sessions for ARC although he largely stopped after July 1932. This lovely record was made in 1929, with a superb vocal credited to Smith Ballew.
