Album Review

Trombonist Jack Teagarden's Verve recordings, his last batch of studio sides, have tended to be underrated. Teagarden was actually still in prime form up until the time of his unexpected death in early 1964. For this set, his sextet (which also includes trumpeter Don Goldie, clarinetist Henry Cuesta, pianist Don Ewell, bassist Stan Puls, and drummer Barrett Deems) mostly performs obscurities. Teagarden sings a couple of charming Willard Robison songs ("Don't Tell a Man About His Woman" and "Peaceful Valley"), Ewell is featured on "Froggie Moore Blues," organist Shay Torrent sits in on an unusual version of "Love Lies," and Goldie is showcased on "Afternoon in August." Other songs include "I Don't Want to Miss Mississippi," "It's All in Your Mind," and "Mis'ry and the Blues." The only Dixieland standards performed are "Basin Street Blues" and "Original Dixieland One-Step." Whether taking trombone solos or singing, Teagarden sounds inspired by the fresh material throughout.

Customer Reviews

You Must Buy!!!!

Jack Teagarden at his best! The sheer quality of this Verve recording (1961) makes the musicians stand out like you've never heard before. Cannot believe it was recorded some 47 years ago. Go and buy this wonderful masterpiece, you will play it over and over again. Enjoy!!

Biography

Born: 20 August 1905 in Vernon, TX

Genre: Jazz

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

One of the classic giants of jazz, Jack Teagarden was not only the top pre-bop trombonist (playing his instrument with the ease of a trumpeter) but one of the best jazz singers too. He was such a fine musician that younger brother Charlie (an excellent trumpeter) was always overshadowed. Jack started on piano at age five (his mother Helen was a ragtime pianist), switched to baritone horn, and finally took up trombone when he was ten. Teagarden worked in the Southwest in a variety of territory bands...
