Dear Bob,
Vernon (a private CD company) is carrying on the fine work of reissuing Jack
Teagarden records, started in the 1980s by producer Joe Showler. 
Mr Showler, a respected Teagarden collector/authority, appears to be Vernon's
driving force and was (is) involved with Teagarden Records (LP and CDs). He is
based in Toronto, Canada.
His expert contributions can also be found (among others) on the excellent Jazz
Oracle 'Ben Pollack' CD series and his help with the Mosaic Teagarden 'Capitol
50s' set. 
Check out Vernon and Teagarden Records CDs at:
There are 6 'Vernon' CDs and 1 video currently listed. I have several.
There are 2 'Teagarden Records' CDs listed. I have both.
Lots of rare stuff
Check out Mr Showler by pulling up Google and typing in: Joe Showler, Teagarden.
As I said in my last post, I have no connection with Vernon. 
Or indeed, Mr Showler.
I am simply a great admirer of his excellent and scholarly work. 
Kind regards,
