He was a great guy and player. I had the honor of playing with him many times. I enjoyed telling him that my parents had bought me his LP, 'LIKE COOL' when I was in the sixth grade, my second year of trombone study. It was a big influence on me. Eventually I would play along and try to learn the songs. Funny, I put it on in the last few months, and as always I really enjoyed it, especially I'M THROUGH WITH LOVE! Always Love for you, Eddie. Thanks for you and your music. Love, Art

Dear friends of Eddie, Please post your thoughts and messages. I will approve and publish them as quick as I can. I have auto-approval turned off because of all the spam.

Eddie was a great musician,and a great guy. Got to know him in the back of a bus somewhere in Europe while on tour. We shared stories and a lot of laughs.Ended up on a hand full of gigs with him through the years. You will be missed!

We met when we were younger, when Eddie was on the Kenton band. The Kenton band would play a date, and local musicians around Providence would gather to chat with the band guys when they were on break. Later on in our lives, we corresponded, since I wanted to feature him in the publication, THE NETWORK, which I published and edited. He was most accomodating, and read his recollections from his famous "diary." When I needed information, he sought the answer(s) in his diary. Eddie, if you're watching all this reaction unfold, have a great time up there, and check in with all your artist friends who preceeded you. May your soul rest in peace, and may the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

I first met Eddie in 1954 at Nola studios. He had already been playing with bands for 10 years. Driving to and from gigs with Eddie was a history of the big bands. He, as we all know played with everyone. The stories he told were priceless. His photographs of all the greats in jazz are priceless. Eddie was a camera buff and loved to take pictures on his gigs. I'm sure his Prius battery was charged so he make it right to the jazz scene in the sky..RIP Eddie Bert

I remember fondly all the times that I ran into Eddie over the years. One of the sweetest cats on the planet.

I ran into Eddie once, shortly after his 80th birthday, and he had let his hair go white. It was always patent leather black before, whenever I had seen him. When I asked him what had happened to his hair, he told me, in that classic Eddie Bert deadpan, "I color it this way, so I look more like my age." Said with that twinkle in his eye, Eddie loved his stories and jokes. I was glad to play for him at the Falcon shortly before his 90th birthday, and to hear him play, even with his physical struggles, and to see that twinkle in his eye once again.

I took a bunch of lessons with Eddie in the 1970s. He was always a total gentleman and great human being. He invited me to look at the book on "Ain't Misbehavin'" and eventually I did a National Tour of that show. I was always amazed that he remembered me even though I was long gone from the Broadway scene. I think the last time I saw him was at a memorial in St. Peter's church and I probably hadn't seen him in 15 years at that point. He always looked years younger than he was. Eddie was a sweet sweet guy. He will be missed. Condolences to his friends and family.

Eddie was my father's first cousin. I had known for years that he was a musician, but did not realize until maybe 6-7 years ago how successful and well known he was. I'm thankful that my wife, son and I had the chance to hear him play in Grinnell Iowa in a concert honoring Thelonius Monk - he was not only a great musician, he was a terrific person.

I will always cherish my lifetime of memories of Uncle Eddie. He had an amazing career and life together with my Aunt Mollie. I always enjoyed to listen to his many many stories of past gigs and the people he had played with/for. We always knew how important family was to him. He'll be greatly missed.

I have an Eddie Bert story that is typical of this extraordinary man. We were contracted to perform outdoors at the residence of a jazz lover in Katonah NY for an afternoon 4th of July party. It was a big band gig and we were dressed in jackets and ties but unfortunately the temperature was 96 degrees and very humid. As we all set up for the engagement the guys began to grumble "Man...It's too hot to be playing outside! This is unbearable, can't we move into the air conditioned house? I think I might pass out!!" Keep in mind these were young men complaining, guys in their 30's & 40's. Along comes Eddie (he was in his early 80's), all dressed up and looking chipper. Everyone said hello then got back to their grumbling. At that point Eddie mentioned thathe had just come from another gig, 3 hours of marching in a parade! Not another word was said about the heat.......

I had the wonderful privilege of sitting next to Eddie on some big band jobs over the past 10 years. What a thrill to sit next to one of my childhood idols. I learned more in one night next to him than in 4+ years of college. Most importantly, I learned about how to be a gentleman. He was a wonderful man and a pleasure to be around. I will cherish the memories and will miss him dearly.

I had the joy of working and rehearsing with Mr Eddie Bert on many occasions over the past 25 years or so (I'm a drummer). We played in Sal Salvador's big and and a few small group gigs w/ Sal and numerous rehearsal bands, and other random gigs. It was always uplifting and reassuring to have a calm, seasoned old pro who kept himself together on all levels--a role model for us all, musicians and nonmusicians alike. See you at the eternal jam session in the Sky, Eddie!! PS: so far, NO word on memorial or funeral--PLEASE post here or on your welcome page if/when you hear of any info--thanks so much for this tribute page. GREG BURROWS

In 1987 my father, Piet van Engelen, had Eddie over for a short tour and LP-recording (Impulse plus Eddie Bert). I was 10 years old at the time. In the scarce free-time i took Eddie around our village on a bike. I remember, quite vividly, that all the bikes in our shed were to big for Eddie, according to Eddie. Except that little bike, which was actually mine. So he took my bike and i my mothers, which was a tad to large for me. I couldn't reach the pedals and sit on the saddle at the same time. And we were away. That must've been quite a sight. Imagine, a grown-up on a childsbike and a kid on a way-too-big-bike, while the latter is jabbering on to the grown-up about the village, playgrounds and other important venues in the life of a 10-year old. Afterwards he asked me take my trumpet out and we played together. Still have pictures of that. That afternoon is one very precious memory for me.
On my graduating concert of Conservatory-education, 2006, in Arnhem, i played Eddie's 'Little Train' on flugelhorn, only accompanied by a bassplayer. Dedicated to Eddie and that afternoon.

I'm sorry to hear that he passed away. Rest in peace Eddie, you'll always have a place in my heart and music.

Sorry to hear about Eddie. We did a tour in the NEtherlands, BElgium and Germany in 1987. Eddie and Mollie stayed in my house for two weeks. We had a fantastic time, playing, traveling, talking etc. We recorded an album, TNT, for which Eddie brought some arrangements. We toured with four bones and a rhythmsection.
Oh, his music, his soloes, his humor his professionalism. But above all Eddie, a great musician a great man.
Thanks Eddie, I am sure you are playing up there.

I live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and attended Eddie's Memorial at St.Peter's.
Plenty of emotion, nice words from the family and friends.
I have some of his records, and became really touched by the musicians performance that night.
Despite not knowing nobody, I have to say that being there was were important. It made me feel more human, if I may say that. And I shared this emotion with my family when returning to Sao Paulo.
I did see somebody filming, and wonder if it would be possible to obtain a copy of such.
I would be immensely grateful.
With respect,
Sergio
