NYNS - Manhattan Fable

Here's a nice one by a guy who I've only just started checking out, Babs Gonzales...he's sort of what you might get if you crossed Slim Gaillard with Lambert, Hendricks and Ross with a heavy dose of hep cat beatnik be-bop slang. Here's Manhattan Fable from his Tales of Manhattan LP.

Also in the news, in some sort of strange synchronistic coincidence, it turns out Cherry Red Records will be issuing a 2-for-1 CD of Tales of Manhattan paired with Googie Rene's classic Romesville this month. Both have been out of print for who knows how long. Personally, I can't get enough of this stuff.
