i ran across this just after posting the jazzmeia horn show, and they’re good companion pieces, even if this is more than twice as old as ms. horn!  this lh&r show seems to be all over the internet (mostly bootlegs), but it always comes back to gordon skene.  and this version too was originally from an mp3 on mr. skene’s past daily website, where he describes lambert, hendricks & ross as

the be all-end all in the late 1950s and into the early 1960s with their luxurious blend of human orchestra harmonies and scat phrasing

mr. skene shares untracked mp3s, but (unusually in my experience) at a good quality: 320 kbps, which is much appreciated.  and the sound is very good.  so i made an exception and converted it to .flac & tracked it.  it was a great fun giving such an inventive & playful show a really serious listen, while tracking it.  this is as fresh today as it was in early 1962.

actually, mr. skene shares a heck of a lot more than music, never mind jazz!… i spent (definitely not wasted!) as much time on his past daily websites as i did tracking this.  probably a good deal more time.  you should definitely go have a look.

comments:

song titles per https://www.israbox.cc/index.php?newsid=3137559094 , with a few changes
(corrections, i think…). my tracking is not precisely the same as their listing,
including in particular that i’ve split out a lot more song intros (generally, i split
them if over 25 seconds). also, between “avenue c” and “cottontail”, there is a 10-minute
piano solo, not listed on the israbox setlist, which i think is a gildo mahones solo.
