During the late 40’s and early 50’s, I saw so many big jazz bands here, yet topping them all has to be watching Teddy Wilson’s appearance during the UK/USA non accompaniment ban the a few members of the early Trad band ignored and made up a great Benny Goodman sounding trio that had Teddy in tears and all received a standing ovation. I will never forget that moment.

Here is a scan of a photograph I took of the former Savoy in the summer 1994:
