Following on from the pioneering Johnny Windhurst CD (RTR 4316), a ‘Record of the Year’, Retrospective presents more buried jazz treasure with The Big Horn Of Little T. Another rewarding collaboration with trumpeter Digby Fairweather, this one throws the spotlight onto the man Jimmy Dorsey called 'The most under-rated trumpeter in the world': Charlie Teagarden – and this is the first ever CD devoted to his artistry. It may have been a mixed blessing to be the younger brother of the musician regarded as the greatest jazz trombonist who ever lived, Jack Teagarden, but Charlie earned a reputation as one of the finest trumpeters of the day, equally effective in a big band setting or (as mostly here) in a small combo. Jazz discographies list 232 sessions, but most studio recordings were with big bands. Here we concentrate on the smaller groups, the majority rare live performances, where Charlie’s astonishing gifts were given freer rein. In particular, we include the entire contents of the one, brilliant, album he made as a leader: The Big Horn Of Little T. His warm and beguiling tone, fluently unfaultable phrasing and generous almost florid vibrato are an irresistible confirmation of Jimmy Dorsey’s written tribute.
