Ahh - I wasn't hip to Stan Hope but that's why I surf blogs - for my personal edification. Nevertheless, any album with Ray Drummond or Houston Person would get my attention.

And, since I just found All That Jazz for the first time yesterday - would appreciate it if one of the regulars here could advising me on finding links and p/w for this blog.
