"The ASV/LIVING ERA label continually puts out many thoughtful releases, and this one is among their best. This is a brilliant selection of early Teagarden work (1929-1934) featuring an amazing all-star cast of players including Benny Goodman, Red Nichols, Glenn Miller, Paul Whiteman's Orchestra, Eddie Condon, Mezz Mezzrow, Joe Sullivan, Gene Krupa, Jimmy Dorsey, Pee Wee Russell, Adrian Rollini, Johnny Mercer, Joe Venuti, and Eddie Lang. The listener is treated to a whole mess of Teagarden's sleepy vocal charm, and a big helping of the virtuoso trombone playing which was his hallmark. The whole disc is chock full of swingin' Dixieland flavored jazz, and Big T characteristically imbues the tunes with deep blues feeling. Most tempos here are medium-hot, which perfectly suits the lilting musicianship of Teagarden, though some tracks, such as Two Tickets To Georgia, really zoom. We are even treated to two duets with Johnny Mercer (tracks 16 & 17). Sound quality on this disc is excellent, and all session information is provided, along with some notes about the man himself. There really isn't another single Teagarden disc which so expertly collects the great material from this period, so this is a very smart buy, and the price is sweet."
Excellend CD highlights his vocal talents.
