Teddy Edwards, a pioneering tenor saxophonist, master balladeer, superb improvisor and accomplished composer/arranger, is best known for his outstanding collaborations with Charlie Parker, Benny Goodman, Dexter Gordon, Clifford Brown and Tom Waits."
Teddy is regarded as one of the very best tenormen by critics, musicians, and jazz fans at home and abroad.
Known for his communicative, forthright playing, bop pioneer and saxophonist Teddy Edwards has long been considered one of the major voices in jazz. A top young tenor saxophone player of the late '40s, the now legendary Teddy Edwards came to Los Angeles with band leader Ernie Fields in 1944, and has been a pivotal player in the LA Jazz scene for more than five decades."
