Recorded in New York, 25 November 1958 and issued on Columbia CL1320
plus your Philips LP.
Swingin' Along On Broadway
Swingin' At The Copper Rail
Mean To Me
The good news is that it is on the Mosaic 8-CD set 'The Columbia Small
Group Swing Sessions 1953-1962', released in 2004.
The bad news is that it has only recently sold out and no longer
available from Mosaic.
Very kind regards,
Bill (busy deliberately lurking at the moment).
