Teddy Bunn (1909-1907) was an American blues and jazz guitar player who rose to the top in the 1930s. Theodore Bunn was a New Yorker who was born in Freeport in 1909. He began recording with Duke Ellington in 1929, twenty years later. He played with The Washboard Serenaders from 1929 to 1931. From 1932 to 1937, he recorded with The Spirits of Rhythm and again in 1939 to 1941. Bunn recorded with musicians such as Sidney Bechet and Johnny Dodds. He also recorded with J.C. Higginbotham, Lionel Hampton, and Jimmie Noone. His popularity declined after he recorded four solo songs for Blue Note. In the 1970s, Bunn was almost exclusively an R-player of electric guitar.
