The Sound Of Jazz
Fine And Mellow
met o.m. Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Gerry Mulligan, Vic Dickenson, Roy Eldridge en Billy Holiday, opgenomen op 8 december 1957 voor de legendarische CBS TV show 'The Sound Of Jazz'.
Producer Nat Hentoff: 'Lester got up, and he played the purest blues I have ever heard, and (he and Holiday) were looking at each other, their eyes were sort of interlocked, and she was sort of nodding and half–smiling. It was as if they were both remembering what had been, whatever that was. And in the control room we were all crying. When the show was over, they went their separate ways'.
