Kermit Levinsky was the birth name of none other than Walt Levinsky, who was not only a fine arranger, but a sensational clarinetist. He could imitate both Goodman and Shaw, and did for various recording projects. In fact, when Shaw made an album in 1968 for Capitol, he hired Shaw to deputize for him.

This is a beautiful album, and one that I didn't know about before your post. Thanks yet again.
