  Excuse me but where in hell did you get the crazy notion that Jack 
Teagarden 'hung out in recording studios to get gigs?'   Teagarden, like 
every other musician went to a recording studio if he had a gig recording 
with some group or his own.  If musicians hung out in studios to get gigs, 
nobody would ever get any recording done.  They are not fun places to hang 
our in.

Also your notion about Dorsey recording with 'less' bands.  What does this
