Johnny Mandel carries the whole world of jazz history and imagination in his head. We've never had a bigger musical talent. I love reading the details. Thanks.

Johnny is fantastic with music. I love listening he has had a part in. Right now I am listening to a song from his new album
"Only our hearts' As soon as I heard it I knew it was a johnny mandel arrangement.
