    At age six, Teddy Weatherford was working in the coal mines of Virginia. By his early 20s he was the toast of Chicago's jazz scene, rivaling Louis Armstrong and wowing Jelly Roll Morton with his piano talent. But when Weatherford left segregated America for the allures of Shanghai and Bombay, he set out on an adventure he hadn't imagined. The man they called "The Seagull" would become the globetrotting jazz king of Asia in the shadow of World War II, and provide the soundtrack for the last gasp of an empire.

    Arthur says: "Excellent tribute to a little known Jazz musician."
