The Lemondrop Kid.

I met a chap in the car park as I was leaving tonight's River City gig. his name was Ken. Ken told me he once met Duke Ellington in Newcastle and sang George Wallington's "Lemondrop" for him. Now Ken, if you read this you've got to tell us more. There can't be many amongst us who have sang "Lemondrop" for Jazz's all-time numero uno and to have sung it for him in Newcastle must surely be unique. So please, Ken, tell it like it was.
Lance.
