My First Ever Jazz Record Request.

Alyn Shipton, on BBC Radio 3's Jazz Record Requests, kindly played my suggestion for a record to remember the late Teddy Charles by. Vibraphonist Charles, who died last month, is featured on Wardell Gray's Paul's Cause. It's about 53 minutes into the program. 
Russell, who told me that it had been played also drew my attention to the second disc played - Nikki Yanofsky's  version of Ella's famous recording of Mr Paganini , recorded when Ms Yanofsky was only 16, it stands up well against Ella's version.
