Ed didn’t get around as much as most all of the other big band guys did. He had that long steady gig with J Carson, and for some reason, I don’t think that those tv jobs, as lucrative and steady as they were, were as well respected in the jazz world as touring and gigging were. I think he missed out on a lot of exposure due to that. I could be wrong, but it just seems that way from things I’ve read.I think Ed Shaughnessy should have made that list, but I'm sure he wasn't as well known.
No doubt Ed was a great one and an all around nice guy.
