    Wallace was a pseudonym of Ed Kirkeby (1891-1978), who was a band leader, vocalist, manager, and salesman, best remembered as the manager of Fats Waller. He was one of the first recording managers at Columbia Records to record jazz and organized the California Ramblers to record it. Over the years he also managed the Pickens Sisters. As Fats Waller’s manager he also acted as his archivist building a collection which is held today by the Institute of Jazz Studies. After Waller’s death in 1943 Kirkeby remained active managing many other groups and musicians. This wonderful recording was made in 1931. The vocalists are uncredited; the lead vocal is by Elmer Feldkamp, probably backed up by Ed Kirkeby (plus, possibly, a third unknown singer).
