A mighty fine start into the week. I also highly recommend Aram Avakian's documentary JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY including Anita's wow performance at Newport in 1958... kind of a miracle since she was high on heroin during that unforgotten gig.

Alan Hill

Anita was truly amazing at Newport in 1958.

Appropos the recent four-part interview with Mike Stoller, the bass line on Ben E. King's Stand By Me was played by Gordon 'Whitey' Mitchell. Blink and you'll miss him, but the bass player behind Anita O'Day at Newport is Whitey Mitchell _ who went on to a successful second career as a TV comedy scriptwriter (Get Smart, All In The Family).

All I can say is, YEP!

Paul Okami

Hey! Jazz on a Summer's Day isn't by Aram Avakian! It's still photographer Bert Stern's work.
