"Teddy On The Towne"
This is the very talented Teddy Towne, a gifted trombonist, singer and emcee who has appeared in more Holiday Inn lounges than any other entertainer in the chain’s history. He is a true individual, the kind of “bone” player who is so playful with his notes you hardly recognize the composition he’s playing. Debonair Teddy still is an exceedingly sharp dresser, having received the name of Shecky Greene’s tailor when he had the pleasure of entertaining at the famous comedian’s second cousin’s daughter’s wedding. Maestro Towne commissioned this portrait for himself and I, Bubbles the artist, am pleased to have gotten the opportunity to preserve him in his peak years.
