Chubby Takes Over.

You pick up a CD, play it once, file it away and promptly forget about it. We've all done it - then, years later, you stumble across it and say, "Hey, I don't remember buying this!" Out of curiosity you play it and you say - "This is terrific!"
I did that today with this CD. It's by bassist Chubby Jackson in 1958 leading a bunch of Woody Herman alumni who, like himself got their big break with Woodrow.
