    Description:
    "The two resolute undercover agents shown in the photograph that illustrates this collection were not, as you may have assumed, engaged in ensuring the downfall of the Third Reich. They were, in fact, paying tribute to Berlin, the great American songwriter, Irving Berlin, whose songs they intended recording that day...Ruby Braff and Ellis Larkins first recorded together in 1955. They got together again in 1972. Now here they are once more, twenty two years later, still going strong like Scotland´s famous Johnny Walker.¯ “ Stanley Dance, author of The World of Swing
