Biography
Not to be confused with Eddie Hayward. Eddie Heywood (born Edward Heywood, Jr., December 4, 1915, Atlanta, Georgia - January 3, 1989, Miami Beach, Florida) was a jazz pianist who was popular in the 1940s. Biography: His father, Eddie Heyward, Sr. was also a jazz musician from the 1920s and provided him with training from the age of 12 as an accompanist playing in the pit band in a vaudeville theater in Atlanta, occasionally accompanying singers such as Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters. Heywood moved, first to New Orleans and then to Kansas City, when vaudeville began to be replaced by sound pictures.
