Biography

Ed hails from El Paso, Texas, but being an ”army brat” he moved up and down the West Coast every few years at the whim of his father’s employer, the U.S. Army. He eventually wound up in Eugene, Oregon, where he studied theory and composition at the University of Oregon, while learning to play on the local jazz scene, which was, and still is, rich in talent.

After periods in Eugene, Berkeley and San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington, Ed made the move to Europe, settling in Stockholm. He played and recorded with a number of Swedish and American musicians, and it was there that he met South African bassist Mbizo Johnny Dyani. This meeting led to several recordings on Steeplechase and other labels, as well as extensive touring throughout Europe.
