Jack Teagarden

Born:

Jack Teagarden was a trombone player, singer, and band leader whose career spanned from the 1920’s territory and New York jazz scenes to shortly before his death in 1964. Teagarden was not a successful band leader, which may explain why he is not as widely known as some other jazz trombonists, but his unusual singing style influenced several other important jazz singers, and he is widely regarded as the one of the greatest, and possibly the greatest, trombonist in the history of jazz. Teagarden was born in 1905 in Vernon, Texas. Born Weldon Lee Teagarden or Weldon John Teagarden (more sources say Weldon Lee, but John makes more sense considering his nickname), Jack’s earliest performances were working with his mother Helen, who played ragtime piano, in theaters

The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia and Rca Victor Studio Sessions 1946-1966

Read "The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia and Rca Victor Studio Sessions 1946-1966" reviewed by Vic Albani


Allora, mettiamo tutti gli aggettivi all'inizio: spettacolare, tentacolare, perfetto, luccicante, esaustivo, infinito, entusiasmante. Potremmo andare avanti per un bel po' di righe ma sarebbe anche stupido anche perché parlare di qualcosa che interessa uno dei nomi che hanno inventato il jazz, per di più in uno dei suoi periodi migliori sia per produzione che per altezza ...

Jazz Inside And Out: Select Posts from 2013-2015

Read "Jazz Inside And Out: Select Posts from 2013-2015" reviewed by John Goodman


Here's a selection of posts from my now-discontinued blog, Jazz Inside and Out. I started writing it in summer 2013 and persisted for about six years. As 2016 rolled around, like many others I got quite taken over by politics, and my posts reflected that. Readership went up, jazz took a sabbatical. Politics and ...

Unscientific Italians: Frisellian Magic

Read "Unscientific Italians: Frisellian Magic" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


If Italian film director Nanni Moretti had been born in 1973 instead of 1953, he might well have set the iconic Vespa ride through the empty streets of a languid, mid-August Rome in Caro Diario against a Bill Frisell rather than a Keith Jarrett soundtrack. Because if every era is defined by a limited ...

Gli Unscientific Italians e l'arte della meta-sintesi Friselliana

Read "Gli Unscientific Italians e l'arte della meta-sintesi Friselliana" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu


Se Nanni Moretti fosse nato nel 1973 invece che nel 1953, la famosa scena di Caro Diario che lo vede in sella ad un vespone per le strade vuote di una languida Roma ferragostana avrebbe avuto come colonna sonora la musica di Bill Frisell piuttosto che quella di Keith Jarrett. Perchè ogni epoca viene definita da ...

Geoff Mason: GMQ

Read "GMQ" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Geoff Mason, one of the UK's leading jazz trombonists, mans the front line by himself on the slyly named GMQ, an eloquent quartet session from which Mason's longtime colleague, the outstanding saxophonist Simon Spillett, is regrettably missing. As nothing can be done to set that right, best to focus on the music at hand, which binds ...

The Archive of Contemporary Music

Read "The Archive of Contemporary Music" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


In Lower Manhattan, sits a musical gold mine. It's the motherlode of recorded music though the small, brightly colored sign above a grey steel door provides only a cryptic clue. The dusty window display of rare 78 RPM records, broken into erratic pie charts serves as a vestige of the past and a cautionary tale about ...

Jack Teagarden: Trombone King

Jack Teagarden: Trombone King

The soulful jazz trombone starts with Jack Teagarden. He began recording in 1927 and over the decades developed a rich, expressive playing style that touched listeners of all ages and backgrounds. Though he was predated by plenty of trombonists, such as Miff Mole and Tommy Dorsey, Teagarden was the most innovative of the pre-war era, largely ...

The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake

Read "The Very Singular Mr. Ran Blake" reviewed by Duncan Heining


There have been few American composers and musicians, with the ability to encapsulate their country's music in all its racial and ethnic complexity. We might perhaps point to Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Charles Ives and perhaps, in their own distaff ways, Harry Partch and Steve Reich. In jazz, their number is fewer still--Duke Ellington and George ...
