    Teddy Bunn is seldom mentioned in discussions about influential early jazz guitarists but he definitely contributed to the instrument's lineage and vocabulary. This record is almost an encyclopedia of licks.

    I first heard him with the Spirits of Rhythm. I have a CD that he recorded under his own name in the 1950s of standards---very nice tone. Here are a couple of older cuts I found on youtube.

    here's a fave bunn track- posted it before, but always good...jacksons nook

    jacksons nook was a small restaurant in san francisco that specialized in Caribbean chicken dishes, where the musicians would go to eat after gigs and invariably wind up jamming in the back room there

    Hah, I KNEW you were gonna post that pic NA.

    For you gear heads that's NAMM '39 in NY. Charlie's playing the newly introduced ES-250 through an even rarer EH-275 maple cab amp.
    Teddy on the newly introduced Super 400 Premier in the newly offered natural finish. It's little sister the matching L-5PN is behind Teddy and Slam's playing the newly introduced Gibson bass. '39 was a very big year @ Gibson!

    Nice picture; and it explains why there are tags on the guitar head.

    For a lot of these old recordings it could be running a little fast or slow.

    Yes, I think you're right. Don't know why I didn't think of that, obvious really.
