Eddie Baxter
Eddie (*1922 in Colorado) was a jazz organist and pianist. By the age of ten he was playing piano for dancing classes. He moved to Los Angeles at age 13, and became a professional musician during his teenage years. He intended music as a hobby, enrolling in the pre-med program at UCLA. These plans were interrupted by World War II, which he spent in the Army Air Force. Following his discharge, he did not return to his studies but instead joined Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra. He then joined Frankie Masters where he added arranging duties to his pianist abilities.
Eddie began playing the organ, which diversified his career opportunities. He was the organist for The Continental and made an album with Renzo Cesana for Capitol Records. Through the early 1950s, he was the staff organist at NBC's KNBH which meant he played for award presentations, audience participation shows, game shows, variety shows, and even a space program. At night, Baxter played in nightclubs in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He became a spokesperson for Western Airlines and toured while promoting that air carrier. He then became Lowery Organ Company's resident artist, then subsequently was their representative in the Southern California territory. Later in life he resided in Sherman Oaks, California. Eddie died in 1998.
