Dear Hal,
My files do not shown any Miff Mole/Andy Secrest recordings during the  
1940s (or at any other time).
If you discount Miff's time with the Paul Whiteman orch and the  
recordings with Whiteman's Bouncing Brass and Swing Wing alongside  
Charle Teagarden, the following are the only candidates from 1940s  
studio sessions I could find:
Yank Lawson, Muggsy Spanier, Max Kaminsky, Bobby Hackett, Hot Lips  
Page, [there were no studio records while he was with Benny Goodman in  
1943], Yank Lawson and Sterling Bose.
Very kind regards,
