      Teagarden well into middle age and I'm guessing that the album dates
      between the late fifties and the early sixties as Teagarden died at the
      age of fifty-eight in January of 1964.I found the album at a North Bend,
      Oregon Goodwill store.In fact,I found another Teagarden album on the Ca-
      may label.I've yet to play it;I suffered a small stroke a couple of we-

      normalcy.

          I have a  couple of 78s of his which are on Brunswick and Columbia.The sides are Octoroon
          on Brunswick and I'll Remember on Columbia.I had his Epic four record set of King of the
          Bjues Trombone.The records were,however,warped to the point that I couldn't overcome it
          by adjusting either the grams for the tone arm or the tracking.Both were located on the
          rear of the tonearm.I have one Decca 78 of Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen.I found
          all three records at a Coos Bay,Oregon business that specialised in juke box and pinball
          macihines.This was in early 1994:The new owner of Sunset Automatic Music found the
          records by accident.There were literally thousands of like knew 78s.Two 78s I found and
          purchased were by Benny  Goodman with Ella Fitzgerald:Goodnight My Love,Take another
          Guess,'Taint No Use with a Benny Goodman vocal and a final Ella vocal on Did You Mean
          It.I was fortunate in finding the entire session.RCA was sued by Decca over those sides
          because Ella was under contract to Decca via Chick Webb's signing with Decca in the mid
          thirties.Goodman should have known better.The Teagarden sides on Decca were not very
          good.Thank you for the info.By the way,I gave a dollar each for those records in 1994.

            There have been some issues of Jack Teagarden's big band around
            over the years. I have an LP on Halcyon HAL-4 and a CD UAE 30222
            both from the around 1944-46. Unfortunately it's really just an
            average sort of big band of the period with only Jack as a soloist of
            any standing. Most of the tracks on the CD as far as I can work them
            come from AFRS broadcasts of the period.
            The big band was a disaster financially for Teagarden as well and
            by the time he joined the Armstrong All Stars he was deeply in debt
            because of the band.
            Some writers have said that Jack lacked the organisation skills
            etc to have become a successful band leader and certainly by the time
            his contract with Paul Whiteman ran out in December 1938 he should
            have been in position to have had a successful big band-for whatever
            reason it just didn't happen.

              interesting u should comment on mr teagarden. my uncle Val salata played the piano and trumpet with mr. teagarden during that time. sometime during that same era uncle val had his own band, but i can't find any recordings

              my uncle was a trained classical pianist, who loved what we called boogie woogie.
              he died in france just after the war when i believe he was playing for the USO , at least that is family lore
              i was only 5 at the time

              any way i begg to differ with u i was able to find only one recording- armed service too, and i think
              uncle Vlado was pretty terriffic in his solo

              if any one any recording with uncle Val on it- i would be more than willing to pay any costs for a duplicate

                  LP HAL-4 'The Unforgettable Jack Teagarden' that I bought from
                  Peter Russell's Hot Record store in Plymouth England in 1971.
                  According to the sleeve.
                  The tracks he is on were recorded (according to the sleeve) during
                  the summer of 1944. Of the 12 tracks he is on one, 'China Boy' seems
                  to be a smaller group with Vic Rosi-clarinet, Gish Gilbertson-tenor
                  sax, Don Seidel-piano, and Jim Lynch-bass and Frank Hhorrington-
                  drums. Val Salata also plays piano on Boogie Woogie.

                    Don't post very often, just enjoy the other threads but I became intrigued by the name Val Salata and did a search; found that there's a place name of Val Salata in the Alps:
                    http://www.dolomiti.org/dengl/Cortina/ce/mtb/Detail.html?rectoskip=7&totrec=14&folder=esc_tofana&subarea=ampezzo&gruppo=Tofana

                    After a steep but short stretch, the landscape changes and opens up to the pastures of Forcella Lerosa and those of Ra Stua. In this area many military outworks are still visible, dating back the 1st world war. Continuing along the path n.6 we arrive at the crossroads of Campo Croce. Here we take a right turn towards Val Salata (path n.6).

                      Bernice Joffe--- According to Lord's discography, your uncle Val Salata was on 4 transcription reissues from August 1944 in California. Charlie Teagarden is in the trumpet section along with your uncle on 2 of these transcriptions, so it is unlikely that Salata soloed on these. Charlie T is missing on the other two, and if there are trumpet solos on these, perhaps Salata is doing them.

                      On August 24, 1944, Salata, Jack T., 2 saxophonists [Gilberton and Rosi] , plus the rhythm section made "China Boy", and indications are that your uncle Val did the vocal and perhaps soloed on trumpet. This transcription is widely available on about 10 labels.

                      Unfortunately, I don't have any of the above material.Val Salata was listed as "probable" on further J. Teagarden transcriptions on September and November 1944, then he disappears completely from discographies.

                      Be proud that you have an uncle that played in Jack Teagarden's band!

                      interesting u should comment on mr teagarden. my uncle Val salata played the piano and trumpet with mr. teagarden during that time. sometime during that same era uncle val had his own band, but i can't find any recordings

                      my uncle was a trained classical pianist, who loved what we called boogie woogie.
                      he died in france just after the war when i believe he was playing for the USO , at least that is family lore
                      i was only 5 at the time

                      any way i begg to differ with u i was able to find only one recording- armed service too, and i think
                      uncle Vlado was pretty terriffic in his solo

                      if any one any recording with uncle Val on it- i would be more than willing to pay any costs for a duplicate

                            Hi All!
                             
                            I am sorry I don't post often here, but I do follow a number of the threads and am amazed at the breadth of knowledge of bands making up the RedHotJazz Forum.
                             
                            That said, I have missed part of the Jack Teagarden Orch. discussion, but it seems to be focusing on a big band he led c.1944-c.46.  He also led a full size band in the late 30s and early 40s.  I have two LPs - Jack Teragarden & His Orch: "Rompin' and Stompin'" (Swing Era Records LP-1020)...and Jack Teagarden & His Orch: "It's Time For Teagarden" (Sounds of Swing LP-111) - featuring 1939 - 1945.
                             
                            Val Salata is listed on trumpet in 7 tunes from Aug. 1944:  Time Out, Pied Piper, Rompin' and Stompin', Hindustan, Harlem Jump, Swing Without Words, and Well, of Course.  I haven't had the chance to play them, but I do think at least some of these cuts on these LPs are air checks.
                             
                            I hope something here adds to the JT discussion.

                            Two cents from
                            Bob Blackard
                             
                            PS:  My email propgram won't let me clip any of the original messages, so they all follow below.  Sorry.
