"Eddie's Hungarian Influence"


This recording was produced in Chicago on September 27th 1931 featuring Eddie South violin & vocals, J. Wright Smith violin, Clifford King clarinet, Antonio Spaulding piano, Everett Barksdale guitar, Milt Hinton string bass, and Jimmy Bertrand drums.

*"Hejre Kati" was composed by Jenö Hubay.

While he was touring Europe from 1928 to 1930 exposure to Hungarian folk music had a massive impact on Eddie South's violin playing.

Although still recognizable as the same violinist, records produced after his return a quite different from those made with his "Alabamians" just a couple of years earlier.

This piece is Eddie South's jazzed-up rendition of a popular dance number written by a prominent Hungarian violinist and composer Jenö Hubay whose works are known for bearing a strong romantic quality.
