Now that's what I call a line up!
The closing track on this week's program is C-Jam Blues with a truly stellar line up: Ella Fitzgerald jamming with, in sequence, Count Basie, Al Grey, Stan Getz, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Roy Eldridge.
Recorded in concert at the Santa Monica Civic in 1972, the 3-LP boxed set was the first released on Norman Granz's then-new label, Pablo Records.
