A portrait of a truly remarkable jazz partnership, this CD presents the combined artistry of the finest trombonist of them all, Jack Teagarden, and the man he described as: the greatest trumpeter I’ve ever worked with . . . and I’ve worked with them all!
Don Goldie (1930-1995) was from a younger generation than Teagarden, yet when Mr. T recruited him to his Sextet in 1959, the trumpeter’s bravura style proved the perfect foil. The music they created during their few years playing together remains among the most enjoyable jazz ever recorded. Retrospective’s survey presents a full (all but 80 minutes!) sequence of the very best. Opening with live material from New York’s Roundtable Club, there follow ten outstanding Roulette tracks from 1960/1, old favourites (Mahogany Hall Stomp . . .) and new numbers (Blue Dawn . . .). A contract with Verve produced two superb albums, Mis’ry And The Blues and Think Well Of Me (with strings), from which the best 9 have been selected. These include six songs by Willard Robison, whose Hoagy Carmichael-style of song-writing suits Teagarden to a T.
This portrait is the latest in a growing series of trumpet showcases on Retrospective, following on from Bobby Hackett (RTR 4208), Billy Butterfield (RTR 4203), Bix Beiderbecke (RTS 4154), Bunny Berigan (RTR 4139) and others, and also perfectly complements the Jack Teagarden double, Big T – A Hundred Years From Today (RTS 4182).
