.not to be confused with the late Jack Palmer, who was a long-time member of
78-L and biographer of Vernon Dalhart.


I see this other Jack Palmer show up as a name on Harry James records ca
1939-1942 and Ben Selvin records of the late 1920s.  All Music also
identifies this name as being a songwriter (Everybody Loves My Baby, and
Jumpin' Jive, to name but a few.  




Under the Songs tab, the list goes on and on, and under the Credits tab,
Harry James records show up.  Under Related, the associates read like the
Harry James band.


Bio tells nearly nothing beyond B 1913 in Nashville, TN; D 2000 in
Waterbury, CT


Is this really the same guy?  One busy dude, if so.  Imagine a hit
songwriter playing second horn to Harry James.  And he would have been among
the oldest musicians in the big band era; he'd have been over 40 while with
James.  Hmmm.  Anybody know anything else about him?
