Biography
Eddie South (November 27, 1904 - April 25, 1962) was an American jazz violinist. He was a classical violin prodigy who switched to jazz because of limited opportunities for African-American musicians, and started his career playing in vaudeville and jazz orchestras with Jimmy Wade, Charles Elgar, and Erskine Tate in Chicago. He was influenced by Hungarian folk music and Roma music starting with a visit to Europe in the 1920s, and adapted the music to jazz. In 1927 he started his own group, Eddie South and his Alabamians, named after the Alabam club where they played in Chicago, and toured with them in Europe from 1928 to 1930.
