I was at a party one time in NYC and w/o advance alert Pinky Winters came descending a spiral staircase lip sync-ing this---her recording of Flying Down to Rio on the stereo---with a mixing bowl and spatula whomping up a mess of Al Cohn brownies. I thought to myself, "My god, Bill, are you EVER in hipsville! This could never have happened to you back in West---by god---Virginia." This is the recording in question: Pinky, with Lou Levy on piano, and Rob Pronk cond. & arr. the Netherlands Metropole Orch. Don't try to buy this CD unless you've got a C note or two to spare.
