  1. We had the Twelfth of Never album when I was a kid. My Mom was a big fan. “Chances Are is still one of the great numbers.

  2. I place Johnny Mathis as “make-out singer” in the same league as Johnny Hartman. Check out the latter’s album “John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman”.

          Strayhorn also wrote “Take the A Train”. You can stump people who think it was Duke Ellington.

          • I learned “Lush Life” from a JACK JONES album that I bought at the old Woolworth’s. No I would have guessed Ellington.
