Dear Glen,
Regarding your comment: >.......there are other renditions that have
more thrust and presence than this one.<
I certainly agree with you.
However, what Bob Romans wanted was a music clip he could download to hear
the whole tune.
All of which reminds me that Benny Goodman recorded "Petite Fleur" on 30
June 1967 (during a Rainbow grill engagement) with Joe Newman, Urbie Green,
pnist Bernie Leighton, Attila Zoller, g; George Duvivier, sb; & Joe
Marshall, d.
For a Command LP album with a 'Paris' theme.
I'm playing it now.
Is this BG's only, ever, musical nod to Sidney Bechet?
Kind regards,
