    Rockin' Chair Armstrong and Teagarden 1957

    The best of 'em all!!!

    On December 30, 1957 in New York City, a TV show is recorded sponsored by a watch company. Timex Show No 1 featured Louis Armstrong and his All Stars, Jack Teagarden and a band with Bobby Hackett, June Christy, Woodie Herman and Dave Brubeck.

    Here is another 1957 version of Rockin' Chair. There is more embiance in this track than the other posted version. Louis is not with his All Stars this time but moves in with the Jack Teagarden group, and specially the backing of cornettist Bobby Hacket reminds me more of the way Louis and Jack did it at their first All Stars performance at Town Hall, New York in 1947
