Producer’s Note: For the recording session live at The Rountdable in New York City (discs one and two), we have restored the music to the order in which the musicians performed it. The three studio albums are in the sequence in which they were first released. Jazz Maverick and all but the last tune of The Dixie Sound Of Jack Teagarden are on disc three. Disc four starts off with the final tune of that album, followed by the ten tunes on A Portrait Of Mr. T and five unissued songs from the same session. We were able to use the original three-track masters on all but the Jazz Maverick session, which has survived only in its stereo LP master form. Unfortunately, the excessive reverb on some of Teagarden’s vocals from that album cannot be reduced.
