Solid T from 1954

"This is a terrific mainstream swing CD from 1954 (originally on Urania) featuring a monster front line of Teagarden on trombone, Ruby Braff on trumpet, and Lucky Thompson on tenor. Four of the six tracks are taken slowly (one, BLUE AND ESOTERIC, is a blues), and the playing here is lush and beautiful. Jack sings on 3 tunes (LOVER, AFTER YOU'VE GONE, and STARS FELL ON ALABAMA) - he's a superb jazz singer. AFTER YOU'VE GONE is the best of the bunch: it swings like mad, it has an excellent Teagarden vocal, and everyone solos well. The rhythm section is solid throughout the album, especially Denzil Best on drums. Grab this gem if you can; you won't be disappointed."
