Eddie Mallory

According to standard belief, anyone who trusted Eddie Mallory did so on the basis of his career as a musician -- not because he later chose to labor in not one but two of the sketchiest professions known to mankind, booking agent and car salesman. He was a talented performer whose early professional training was in territory bands such as the Alabamians. Mallory played both trumpet and saxophone and was a talented arranger, yet the most noteworthy aspects of his career were the identities of two people who were very close to him, their fame easily dominating his own respectable three decades in the music business and a discography that would strain the back of a healthy camel.
