Yes wonderful. B Galbraith on guitar too. In fact apart from Brownie it looks like 'the team', the NY R/Secn of BG, Hinton, Johnson except for Jimmy Jones on piano instead of Hank Jones.

S'wonderful. Helen Merrill, Sheila Jordan, Sue Raney they all have that certain something that lifts them that little bit higher in the pecking order.

I had never heard of her, but boy is she good...thanks Hil for the intro...that song says so much, and I guess it relates to many who have long ago loved & lost..
