By Request

Talk about tangled jazz lineages! Here is the ex-wife of arranger George Handy, the late widow of sax legend Al Cohn, the sister of Ella Mae Morse and the step-mother of guitarist Joe Cohn. Heard here with guitarists Carl Kress (whose centenary it is this year) and George Barnes from her LP, Smoky and Intimate.

Any excuse to spin a couple of tracks by, perhaps, my personal favorite of all my 225 "One Shot Wonders" singers, Flo Handy .

No Moon At All

Fine and Dandy

I assume that you are considering this for release by the SSJ. As a buyer of every one of your albums that I can find, please go forward with any intention to reissue Flo Handy's one and only album. By the way, the Carole Creveling grows better with each listening.
