Photo, Print, Drawing [Portrait of Eddie South, Café Society (Uptown), New York, N.Y., ca. Dec. 1946] Caption from Down Beat: Violin: Eddie South. Eddie made his return to club engagements when he opened at Café Society Uptown a month or so ago. He had been spending most the preceding years as a single on air shows. These days, jazz is seldom sawed by the famed South fiddle bow. Mostly it's congas, rhumbas, pops and the other things you'd expect from a "society" combo. But he sneaks in "Honeysuckle Rose" often enough to let you know he hasn't forgotten
