Album Review

This budget LP contains 12 performances taken from Jack Teagarden's radio transcriptions of 1941-42. All of this music has since been reissued on CD by Jass but, if found at a cheap price, it is worth acquiring.

Born: 20 August 1905 in Vernon, TX

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s

Teagarden worked in the Southwest in a variety of territory bands...
