A slight change of venue
If I Should Lose You (Leo Robin, Ralph Rainger)
Summertime (George Gershwin, Dubose Heyward)
Good For Nothing Joe (Rube Bloom, Ted Koehler)
Day In, Day Out (Rube Bloom, Johnny Mercer)
'Round Midnight (Thelonious Monk, Cootie Williams, Bernie Hanighen)
He Needs Me (Arthur Hamilton)
Makin' Whoopee (Walter Donaldson, Gus Kahn)
The title of this LP---one of Shirley Horn 's first recordings---was not recorded at the Vanguard but, rather, Gaslight Square in St. Louis. The Vanguard was about a thousand times more well known to the average record buyer than the actual recording site. Besides, who could tell the difference anyway? To HELL with historical---not to mention discographical---inaccuracy. rec 8/61 w/ John Mixon, bass & Gene Gammage, drums. Download available for the next 48 hours only.
Although the label that released this, Canadian-American, was a bonifide (not bootleg) label, it is somehow doubtful this was released with Horn's knowledge or permission. Still. . .nice to have it. Sorry 'bout the jacket scan. Then again, maybe the more the scan crops off of the jacket---ummmm--- "design," the better.
