Stomp Off in C...

 

Impromptu Lush Life.

It was a late January night a half century ago. Duke and his band were the star attraction at New York's Basin Street East, but this is a moment with Billy Strayhorn. The MC is William B. Williams, then my co-worker at WNEW, and I should have gone there with him, as he suggested, but I must have had something better to do, although I doubt that. Not that I missed a great performance, but even when he sang flat, Billy Strayhorn managed to get his message across. Check it out.
