This week I posted about the theme music of TV show.
On last day, I would like to post about this album.
When I began to listen jazz,my jazz’s freinds liked Art Pepper.
But I became to like Bud Shank than Art Pepper.
I began to collect his records.
This record is unusual, but do not have much popularity.
I suppose most jazz fans were not fond of their performance with a string ensemble.
Bud Shank and Bob Cooper had two of the most talented and imaginative practitioners of contemporary music.
The fundamentally original arrangements to be found in this album were the work of Bob Cooper.
Fortunately I was able to post my favorite record in my blog.
Finally, I will introduce a fun website.
Today is February 29, leap year and leap day.
I learned for the first time that this record was recorded in the leap day, 1960.
In addition, to my great delight,this album commentary was written by Martin Williams.

I have a memories about Martin Williams who was an American jazz critic and writer.
He described liner notes of this album in 1960.
Shortly afterward, when he published ‘Jazz Changes’, he stated this recording in detail as a sub-chapter in his book.
Also I think his work ‘The Jazz Tradition’ is excellent.
In spite of my poor English,I’ve read ‘The Jazz Trandittion’.
Nowadays, we can read ‘Jazz Change’ by Google Books.
I must study English more.

’Bésame Mucho’ is famous in Japanese jazz fan.
Art pepper and Jimmy Dorsey orchestra had been playing this song.
If anything, I am fond of Jimmy orchestra.
Tommy Dorsey who was younger brother had been successful to the swing era with Frank Sinatra.
Jimmy Dorsey orchestra had a duet chorus.
Bob Eberly and Kitty Kallen were fascinating.
I’d want to listen Kitty’s Vocal with Jimmy Orchestra .
Her life was written in detail in the newspaper.
