Eddie Heywood

The Eddie Heywood Sextet was very popular in the mid-'40s, playing melodic and tightly arranged versions of swing standards. Heywood's father, Eddie Heywood, Sr., was a strong jazz pianist of the 1920s who often accompanied Butterbeans and Susie. He taught piano to his son, who played professionally when he was 14. Heywood Jr. performed with bands led by Wayman Carver (1932), Clarence Love (1934-1937), and, after moving to New York, Benny Carter (1939-1940). Heywood led his own group from that period on, backing Billie Holiday on a few occasions starting in 1941. In 1943, Eddie Heywood took several classic solos on a Coleman Hawkins quartet date (most notably "The Man I Love") and put together his first sextet, which also included Doc Cheatham and Vic Dickenson. Their 1944 version of "Begin the Beguine" became a hit, and three years of strong success followed. During 1947-1950, Heywood was stricken with a partial paralysis of his hands and could not play at all. He made a gradual comeback in the 1950s, mostly performing watered-down commercial music in addition to composing the standard "Canadian Sunset." Despite a second attack of paralysis in the late '60s, Eddie Heywood continued performing into the 1980s. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I wonder if he influenced Red Garland. I can hear similarities . Good playing.
I like Eddie Heywood Sr.

I love him!!!
Smooth easy listening.
Canadian Sunset is timeless and Eddy Played it perfectly! His style is also ageless. I'm old and like music - not the noise of freaks now so important to young hero worshipers. Heywood and Garner are my lifelong music HEROS!
My family was in Michigan, and I was visiting my grandparents in California. Something happened and I had to stay for 2 yrs. I had the album Canadian Sunset, and would lie on my bed listening to it at least once/day, thinking of my parents and siblings so far away. I have always enjoyed Eddie's music. It's so relaxing. Gives you an opportunity to relax and THINK! As John G Gobbetti says, "Is Eddie Heywood still alive?"
