Greatest Hits by Jack Teagarden

This online compilation of 46 .mp3 recordings by visionary trombonist Jack Teagarden was released on January 1, 2009 and is available online through Amazon for only $8.99 or through Emusic.

With the exception of the hard swinging "A Jam Session At Victor" I didn't find any new material on this January 1, 2009 compilation of Jack's classics. However, what I did find are, by far, the clearest remixes of Jack tearing through blues and swinging numbers like:

St. Louis Blues
I've Got It
Makin' Friends
You Rascal You
I'm Gonna Stomp Mr. Henry Lee
Muddy Rive Blues
Beale Street Blues
That's A Serious Thing
Dr. Heckle And Mr. Jibe
Knockin A Jug
Swingin' On The Teagarden Gate
Texas Tea Party
The Sheik Of Araby
Serenade To A Shylock
I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues
I Swung The Election
Christmas Night In Harlem

This collection is a solid must have addition, or sound quality upgrade, for every DJ and will give you a whole new appreciation for Mr. Teagarden.
