To my knowledge ,while Teddy Wilson played and recorded w/BG a LOT ,he
did not play with the big band @ the famous Carniegie "38 gig.Joe Bushkin
was a VERY important part of the excitement in Sing Sing Sing,along with
Krupa,James ,and of course Benny. al singer Carefree, Az.
I think you mean Jess Stacy, not Bushkin. Pianists Teddy Wilson, and Count
Basie were also on that gig in limited combo roles, along with Lionel
Hampton, Bobby Hackett, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Cootie Williams,
Freddie Green, Walter Page, Lester Young, and Buck Clayton.
