(February 20, 2017): Jack Teagarden and His Orchestra – High Society

From the 1956 album, Big T.  My Grandparents had this album – wish my Dad had saved it and others – but this song in particular hooked me on hot jazz even though there was a period in my youth when I thought I was pretty uncool for liking the genre.  Edmond Hall cooks on clarinet and Jimmy McPartland blows that trumpet. Teagarden, of course, cut his teeth with the biggies Louis Armstrong, Eddie Condon, Red Nichols, Paul Whiteman, etc.
