Don't forget that Jack Teagarden played in Thailand
and used to feature the King's song "When?". It was
recorded on Jack's "Roundtable" LP. I was stationed
in Bangkok in the 60's and there was a place called "Starlite" or such in town. As Richard Stevens mentioned
Lachie Thompson played clarinet there. I sat in with him
a few times and didn't know then that the King played, or that Lachie played with the King. There was also a Philipino trombonist, Luna, I believe was his last name,
who frequently played the Starlite.
I have heard that Jack Teagarden gave the King a gift of a trombone back when.
