A Hundred Years from Today

The Genius of Jack Teagarden - Programme Two

Saturday 3 September 2005 18:00-18:30 (Radio 3)

The second programme marking the centenary of one of jazz's true giants, trombonist and singer Jack Teagarden. Following the demise of his own big band in the early 1940s, Jack returned to his preferred style of jazz - small group playing.

After teaming up with Bud Freeman, Rex Stewart and Eddie Condon, Jack joined Louis Armstrong's All Stars and enjoyed several wonderful years with Louis before leaving to lead a succession of small groups with Bobby Hackett, Erroll Garner, Earl 'Fatha' Hines and Don Goldie.

Geoffrey Smith is joined by trombonists Scott Stroman and Roy Williams to look at Jack's later career and at how, despite various setbacks, Jack secured his name as jazz's number one trombonist.

Duration:

30 minutes
