Ed Kirkeby (Oct.10,1891 – June 12,1978) band leader, vocalist, manager, and salesman, is 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.
He used several pseudonyms for recording including Ted Wallace, Ed Kirkeby Wallace, and Eddie Lloyd.
Over the years he also managed the Pickens Sisters, was an A&R person at RCA Victor, and worked in the band booking department at NBC. 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 through 1977.

You can join the fight for free speech by forwarding this email to your friends, and joining Team Mitch on Facebook andTwitter.
