Born: November 16, 1905 | Died: August 4, 1973
Eddie Condon was on of the young 'White' Chicagoans who, during the 1920s, were instrumental in creating a new, hard driving type of Chicago Dixieland Jazz. His career started at just age 17 when he played Banjo (his original instrument) with the 'Hollis Peavey Jazz bandits', and he even played briefly with some members of the now fabled Austin High School Gang.
In 1927 he co-led the McKenzie-Condon Chicagoans on a record that was popular in Chicago. In 1929, after organizing some other recording sessions, Condon switched cities and instruments. He moved to New York, and began playing the guitar. In New York, he worked with Red McKenzie's Mound City Blue Blowers and with Red Nichol's and His Five Pennies. He appeared on one record (1929) with Louis Armstrong and His Savoy Ballroom 5....
