It goes without saying, I trust, that any recording of these two artists performing together is simply wonderful stuff.
But I'd like to draw your attention to one track in particular. Stompin' At The Savoy was a rehearsal which the canny producer had the wit to record just in case something good happened. It happened. Backed by The Oscar Peterson Trio, the two singers launched into a jam that beggars belief. It's just astonishing that people can improvise this well. And the greatest pleasure is that we can hear just how much they're enjoying it while it's happening. Think of the Morecambe and Wise sketch with Andre Previn and you're in the right neck of the woods. Blissful.
But every track is a pleasure. I warmly recommend this to you.
