I wasn't aware that Teddy Buckner had done a recording of Armstrong tunes,
but after reading about it on DJML, I got the Salute to Louis CD from iTunes
& have it playing this very moment. I believe that it is the same band that
was playing with Teddy in the early '60's, and wonder if it was the
recording they were working on when I left the States for Spain in 1966?
Caughy Roberts (pronounced "Couch") was the clarinestist/sop sax then. He
sent me an open reel tape of the Sidny Bechet song "Si Tu Vois Ma Mere"
after I arrived in Madrid. It was one of my favourites that they played,
and he said it was for a new recording. It never actually seemed to make it
onto a published record. We have taken to playing this song from time to
time. It's a lovely tune. Lots of room for improvisation.
