            That one really is a bolt from the blue. Not much on line but it says he died at the Lillian Booth Actors Home which is an assisted living facility so he must already have been pretty ill.

                I notice Mr Trunk says he has the rights to 'This Must Be Earth' and has an aim to release it. Can I ask, Mr Trunk, if you are thinking of doing it on one of those circular vinyl thingies?
                It was 'Straight No Chaser' that hipped me to Mark Murphy- really miss that mag.

                  Peterson's on 6 Music 10am-1pm today (sitting in for Lauren Laverne all week) and has already dropped a snippet of "my favourite things" and most of the scat classic "dingwalls".

                  I'm sure there's more to come...

                    Sorry to hear this. His Midnight Mood lp is something I'd never tire of

                        Could be issuing 'This Must Be Earth" next year, there will be wax. May I also recommend this weird one with Herb Geller. There are three different pressings...

                          never has the word "Sconsolato" been more appropriate.

                          this is my desert island disk.

                            I had four copies of the German Nova issue at one point!! One disc instrumental, the other with Mark Murphy vocals, great stuff.

                              Sad news. RIP.

                              I love the RAH album with his version of Milestones.
