> If you get the chance listen to Johnny Bastable's band on the Joy label play Avalon - the Colyer band without Colyer.
> If not then Louis with the Dukes - Louis Armstrong's solo will bring a smile.

Dear Richard,
My only Johnny Bastable records are those with Acker Bilk on clarinet and my dear Aussie mate Viv Carter on drums.
And Louis is in fine form on all his tunes with 'The Dukes'.
"Avalon" is no exception, notwithstanding the hash Louis makes of the lyrics.
Very kind regards,
