If you can play LPs, the Time-Life Giants of Jazz set on Tesch is a good alternative to CDs. Moreover, it comes with a comprehensive booklet.
PS Incidentally, Tesch is listed in the 1920 US Census as Frank Teschemacher (with an e between the h and the m), age 13, born in Missouri, living in Chicago IL with father Charles (age 46, general agent railroad), mother Charlotte (age 45), sister Mildred (age 21) and brother Charles (age 17). Same family and spelling in the in the 1910 US Census except that they are living in Kansas City Missouri.
