Hoorah for Stars of Jazz
Two extra tracks from Doris Drew more than welcome over here...Thank's mate...Really appreciated...I love that show (though never seen it, except for the Ruth Price session you shared on youtube...)Seems that there were many (unknown) singers...These two sessions seem like more conventional pairings, but what about the great Kitty White singin with Art Blakey's Jazz Messangers...Any chance you have that one? And where came these tracks from?Issued on cd?

Fabulous. I adore Doris Drew and this is a great contribution given the briefness of her discography!

All of the soundtracks from SOJ were at one time available on LP on a label that I seem to remember was called Calliope. I should have bought them at the time, because they was an eventual injunction against the label by the rightful owners of the material. I have precious few of them. June Christy, Billie Holiday, Reina Clay (who?), Ann Weldon and Barbara Dane.
