    I’ll probably listen to it on YouTube before I hear the LP.

      The cover is great, but the rest of their discography doesn't suggest jazz brilliance...

        "Lullaby of Birdland" trots along nicely enough. And there is another that has a some pace to it. The rest strikes me as a bit bland.

          Lullaby of Birdland is a good tune though. I think I even had a record of a mechanical organ playing it and it sounded good

                bought a few new things before they sell out, but nothing old - in order to maintain domestic harmony I need to clear out a lot first which is impossible at the moment (have stopped selling and charity shops are closed) although might see if enough of interest for a freebies thread which would make a small dent in the several feet of overspill...

                  all too familiar a situation ... the postman's doorbell ring is starting to become a trauma ... but when I look on Yahoo Auctions and see something I *need*, the 700 yen shipping means I *must* buy several more items ...

                  HELP!
