I have wondered who the drummer is on "While We Danced at the Mardi Gras".
He is unbelievable. 

Bill, are you thinking that it is Jack Sperling?  Anyone have any more
information on this drummer?

On Track 1 of this CD, "While We Danced At The Mardi Gras", was also made at
the 24 Feb 1959 record date and could be the session mate to "Lazy River".

Is it the same quartet on "We Danced At The Mardi Gras"?  What often aids
identification in cases like this (but not always with later anthologies)
are titles of other tunes from the same recording session.

I hope that this will help you get a little closer to the answer to your
Kind regards,
