Thanks Jack. That prompted me to look up the Timex show and I found a  
very interesting write up about it on a blog. Complete with other You  
Tubes from the show. They also feature Bobby Hackett, Gene Krupa, with  
the Armstrong All Stars.

As well as a rousing Perdido with Louis, and Duke Ellington's  
Orchestra though the chaos at the end and and Cat Anderson's high  
squeals might be a little much for some of the traddies on the list.  
<grin>  It is in medley form after Umbrella man.

The blog and other you tubes of this show are at
