I remember hearing about Garment via George T. Simon.I remember Jack Eagle and Manny Fox from Georgie Auld's 1944 big band.Henry Jerome was a trumpeter who,according to George T. Simon,played stiffly and rather sharp.I remember Gene DiNovi from a short lived big band led by Chubby Jackson that recorded for Co-
lumbia in 1950.I believe Tiny Kahn was also the drummer in that band.Jackson recorded four sides for them which were released on French Columbia back in the 1970s.I have the album here:I bought it in the early '80s in a drug store in North Bend,Oregon.Is that CD available or is it out of print?

 mastered the saxophone as well. As a young man he played
 jazz gigs from Manhattan to the Catskills. For a time he led
 his own nine-piece band, enjoying a posh life that offered
 an escape from what he saw as the dreary confines of
 Brooklyn. He paid for part of his college education by
 playing tenor saxophone and clarinet in Woody Herman’s
 band, and in Henry Jerome’s band he teamed with an
