Phil won a Tony Award for "Top Banana". I also recall his performance in Stanley Kramer's "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" ... hilarious.

Talking hilarious, one of my favorite album titles always will be "Rosie Solves the Swingin' Riddle", the first of two albums that Rosemary Clooney and Nelson Riddle did together.

Joseph Broz

Thanks, Marc, for the highly interesting post.

BTW: The other Clooney/Riddle album was LOVE - a perfectly fitting title since they had a hot affair at that time. RCA shelved the album after its production in 1961, and it was rediscovered by Frank Sinatra (!) who eventually released it on his own label Reprise in 1963.

Rosemary Riddle Acerra

Hi Marc - such a wonderful piece on Swingin' Brass- so well done!
I love all your detail - your passion for this is so evident.

Dad would be honored to read this blog although I cannot even imagine him using a computer. I believe once he understood the power if its ability to keep people informed and connected that he would be on board.

Best,
Rosemary

Rivet

haha, that's a classic.

John Cooper

"Platooon, hee-yaaaaa!"
