Although it came later than Manne's album, one Broadway-inspired effort worth noting is Johnny Richards' amazing "My Fair Lady-My Way." Incredible writing using the unique instrumentation of Johnny's orchestra (four saxes - alto/tenor/baritone/bass with Joel Kaye doubling bass sax with piccolo), 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, a single mellophonium, and 3-piece rhythm section.

RIP Teo. Teo reminds me of the great editor Maxwell Perkins, wh, as an editor at Scribners, helped midwife some of the great modern classics. Teo was a great musical "editor."
