LP Artwork: Carmen McRae & George Shearing/Two for the Road

This is the cover of the only album that jazz giants Carmen McRae and George Shearing made together, Two for the Road. It was released in 1980 and, sadly, was their only studio collaboration.

The song selected for this week's program is Ghost of Yesterday written by Irene Kitchings (aka Irene Wilson during her short, ill-fated marriage to pianist Teddy Wilson) and Arthur Herzog Jr. Together they penned the fine song, Some Other Spring, first recorded by McRae's idol, Billie Holiday.
