Here's a nice discussion from a drummer's point of view (Gary Chester is a legendary studio drummer and teacher and footage of him playing is very rare):

Thanks for the follow up on that wonderful video Mary and Marc.

That's a coincidence! I rewatched the video yesterday and played it for my wife telling her how great the group was and what shame that RCA pulled the plug on them and even wiped the tapes. I thought what happened to Mary Vonnie and Googled around but nothing...and today here's the email from her with her photograph. Thanks Mary and Marc...and yes that video deserves to be included in a compilation of Dave Lambert.

Marc, This is great. A fantastic discovery for the Dave Lambert catalog. And Hello Mary, beautiful voice. I graduated HS right behind you in '65. You were indeed lucky to bea a part of Lambert's work. Congrats Marc - what a find!

Prof. Schmiddy

Fantastic that she was located! What a adorable beat-cutie! Since your post 2 months ago, I've watched this clip repeatedly. I can't get enough. It's tough for me to believe that they would have erased the tape made that day. Why, why, why can't there be more of this type of Jazz?! It breaks my heart that there's so little. Thanks for the great work!

There's something about Mary. I think it's the combination Suzanne Pleshette and Audrey Hepburn. Very beautiful young lady.
