NTSC/Region 0. This DVD contains rare filmed performances from two of the greatest exponents of Jazz trombone in musical history! Frank Rosolino (featured in a 1962 performance) was one of the best known names in the West Coast due both to his exceptional technique and his warm personality. Jack Teagarden (from 1952) was a widely loved figure, both as a trombonist and as a singer, from his recording debut in 1927 until his death. Unlike the rough sound generally attributed to the trombone, Teagarden created a unique and melancholic voice on his instrument that would forever change the sound of the jazz trombone. As a bonus we have included a complete 1939 short film presenting pianist/composer/singer Hoagy Carmichael playing his tunes with Jack Teagarden and his orchestra. Oh!vation.
