Albert Edwin Condon (b. 1905 in Goodland, Indiana – d. 1973 in NYC) American jazz banjoist, guitarist, and bandleader. A leading figure in the so-called "Chicago school" of early Dixieland, he also played piano and sang on occasion. After some time playing ukulele, he switched to banjo and was a professional musician by 1921. He was based in Chicago for most of the 1920s, and played with such jazz notables as Bix Beiderbecke, Jack Teagarden and Frank Teschemacher.
In 1928 Condon moved to NYC where he frequently arranged jazz sessions for various record labels, sometimes playing with the artists he brought to the recording studios, including Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller. He played with the band of Red Nichols for a time. From 1945 through 1967 he ran his own New York jazz club, Eddie Condon's. In 1948 his autobiography We Called It Music was published.
