Just mention my name and up I pop! Rarely fails.
Garry Moore (1915-1993) was indeed a friend of jazz.
I am sure that Don Ingle can elaborate.
Moore regularly featured jazz guests on his program.
In particular, on 26 November 1961, he devoted his 'Dupont Show of the Week'
TV program to "America's Music - Chicago and All That Jazz" which included
(among others) Henry 'Red' Allen, Louis Armstrong (archive footage), Buster
Bailey, Mae Barnes, Blossom Seeley, Bix Beiderbecke (archive material),
Bessie Smith (archive footage), Bud Freeman, Johnny Guarnieri, Eddie
Condon's band (music off screen), Bob Haggart, Gene Krupa, Meade 'Lux' Lewis
and Jack Teagarden.
I have a full synopsis, but please do not ask me to type it out.
The Garry Moore LP you mention is probably Columbia CL 717 'Garry Moore
Presents My Kind Of Music' [that sounds familiar!] and features items by
George Barnes, Wild Bill Davison, pianist Mel Henke, the Rampart Street
Paraders, Ernie Caceres and Sonny Terry.
