Bird With Strings. Landmark recordings.
Thank you Marc for shedding some lights on how this came about. Luckily we have lots of recordings. But to me the most enjoyables are the ones Live At Birdland. I almost feel like being there at times.

I'll listen to "S by S" again, but I remember Lippman's string arrangements as being exceptionally dull and a major turn-off.

Jason Parker

Great post! Love it.
