Another great list--the Blossom Dearie and Four Freshmen recordings are particular favorites of mine.

Michael Steinman

Whimsical and musical both! I would add the mournful SPRING IS HERE (Rodgers and Hart) performed by Tony Bennett with the Ruby Braff-George Barnes Quartet, most recently issued on a Bennett CD on Concord. Hardly elated but greatly moving. Keep springing, Marc!

Can't argue with any of your choices from either day--many are favorites of mine too. But given your opening remark at the top of Part 2, it's good you found something by Getz to include, albeit obliquely, since he was born on February 2, that cussed ground hog date that also saw the births of James Joyce and (he said modestly) your humble correspondent... Don't know about NYC but Spring is definitely slow to stir this year in Seattle! Thanks for the warm-up.
