CD Reviews

A Treasure
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This may be the best recording Teagarden ever had. The horns, Ruby Braff and Lucky Thompson are wonderful, but so is the rythm section. Ken Kersey on the piano is a revelation and Milt Hinton on Bass with Denzel Best on drums are greats. These are about the only extended recordings JT ever did. I am so glad it finally come out on CD in 1998. I have been waiting for it since 1988."
Master at work...

"There may be no better purveyor of the slide than Jack Teagarden. The question that comes from this wonderful CD: which is more enjoyable, Teagarden's restful-loping voice or the so smooth notes of his horn? Either way, the listener wins. If you know nothing of Jack Teagarden,but love jazz, then buy this music-- if only to enjoy the beauty of "One hundred years from today..." If you like it or already own it, then look further to his beautiful recordings from the Mosaic label, which are unfortunately not available from Amazon. Amazon are you listening?"
Music is OK...Sound is awful!

"I see that this CD has been remastered. It either was in terrible shape to start with or a terrible job was done. The sound quality makes it hardly listenable. After hearing the Teagarden cut on the Johnny Mercer Songbook I eagerly looked forward to this album. I was very disapointed."
