See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have

Another set of Teddy Grace for those who didn't get enough with the last one. It's really a shame that her career was so short. Grace joined the WACs in WWII and strained her voice so much in bond and political rallies, that for years after she could barely even speak. "Even veteran swing collectors might be unaware of the enjoyable recordings that the unfortunately obscure but very talented Teddy Grace made during her relatively brief career. This valuable CD has 22 of the 30 selections that she made as a leader (leaving off two sessions) and finds Grace very much at ease, whether interpreting swinging, lesser-known material, a series of high-quality blues, or period pieces. The supporting cast -- which includes such notables as cornetist Bobby Hackett, trumpeters Charlie Shavers and Max Kaminsky, trombonist Jack Teagarden, clarinetist Pee Wee Russell, tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman, and pianist Billy Kyle, among others -- speaks for the high esteem in which she was held during the era."
