Ed Smalle

Ed Smalle (pronounced "smalley") (1887–1968) was a much-recorded vocalist and pianist during the latter days of acoustical recording. He began his career in music as a song demonstrator in Boston before moving to New York to work for Harry Von Tilzer's publishing company. He began his recording career at the suggestion of Billy Murray, who appreciated Smalle's ability to sing vocal harmony. Smalle's expertise in creating eccentric vocal sounds won him great favor as a recording artist. He was also a member of the popular vocal group The Revelers, as both vocalist and pianist.
