  1. OOhhh! A nice companion piece to my removed artificial lung. THANX.............

  2. Thank you too! I love browsing your blog. --Mark

  3. In all honesty, THIS is top drawer music. At least as good as Billy May or Neal Hefti. What capacity did McCallum produce these? Was he the orch. leader, arranger? It's just a shame he didn't sing to some of these...

  4. He conducted, and a now-famous "elevator music" arranger laid it out for him. If you check out Discogs you can learn more.
