But no Chanukah music?


Thank you for the recommendation. This album looks great and I am downloading it now. I got the Jo Stafford album you recommended last year and I love it.

I have fond memories of listening to Eddie's music and chatting with him and his friend Gene Lees during a week at sea, at the “Floating Jazz Festival” of 1995.
During a Q&A session, someone asked him about his work schedule and he had this great answer: “I spend the summers in Cape Cod and the winters in Florida. It’s a tough life but someone’s got to do it.” Reminds me of my favorite album of his, “Those Quiet Days” :

Great pick Marc! I purchased the recording from iTunes and really enjoy listening to it.
