A Night for Nat

The closest I ever came to having a mentor. . .oh, hell, Nat Shapiro was my mentor. Here is a clip from his 1983 memorial service. Michel Legrand and "ze gang" introduced by Bill Simon.

Today is the birthday of the great jazz singer Leo Watson. Were he alive today, he'd only be 112 (112 is the new 92).

"A wonderful album---jazzy and theatrical in just the right proportions. "
