One day Bob and I were checking a legendary bass player Scott LaFaro’s recordings and found this gem “The Broadway Bit” by Marty Paich. Also a legendary jazz drummer Mel Lewis in this album! Bob played in The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra when he was in early 20’s so we had a great time listening to this album.
