Georgia - Jack Teagarden

Jack Teagarden - Vocals  Trombone

Ray Leatherwood - Bassist

This Bass, played by my friend Tamara Nikolai, is the same Bass played by
Ray Leatherwood in this recording of " Georgia" by Jack Teagarden in 1951.

Ray Leatherwood was also the Bassist for  THIS IS JULIE LONDON -
1955 Liberty Records.
Leatherwood also played for many years in the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.
This bass dates back to the 1920s.

Tamara can be seen at Darwin's Burgers and Blues as well as other Blues Venues.
