This drummer, whose name shows up as Ed, Eddie, and Edward and whose surname is also served up with variations, had a much less vague presence in terms of backbeat on funk and jazz fusion productions from the '70s. He should not be confused with the keyboardist of the same name from Philadelphia, not to mention many other people named Eddie Green in the music business. Drummer Green was sometimes paired with the great bassist Wilton Felder. There apparently was yet another Eddie Green who played drums on several jazz records from 1935.
