The tender blues pianist and tough tenor were paired only once—on an album called Moodsville, Vol. 1, recorded for Prestige in December Images 1959. For the life of me, I have no idea why only four tracks were captured that day and why the pair didn't record another 25 albums together.

Side a
1. we'll Be together again
