It seems there were two Jack Palmers:

One was a trumpet player (b. 1913, d. 2000) who worked with Harry James, Red 
Norvo and several other bands, real name Giovanni Palmieri (wonder if he was 
related to Eddie?  or Remo?).  Information and a picture at this website:

The other was the songwriter (b. 1900, d. 1976) who was also a singer.  He 
worked with Cab Calloway, also with Harry James and a number of others.  In 
addition to "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "I've Found a New Baby" the 
All-Music Guide credits him with compositions like "The Jumpin' Jive," "Are 
You All Reet," "Bimbo" (aka "I'm Gonna Take My Bimbo Back to the Bamboo 
Isle" -- a GREAT song), "Boog It," "Boodle Am Shake," "Hi Ho Trailus Boot 
Whip" and many more.  URL:
