  1. I bet this is a great album. When I was in my early twenties I walked into a sporting goods store in down Town Waterloo, IA. There was an old man working in the store. I told him I was looking for two batting gloves. He gave me a curious look and asked me why? I told him I was a drummer and that I wanted to use the batting gloves when I played the drums. He asked me to go in the back room and showed me in his office autographed pictures of buddy rich, louis bellson, and gene krupa. Serendipity

  2. Mark-
    I am working on Herb Geller's discography and have been unable to find this Bellson LP. Is there any chance I could get to listen to it? Many thanks. Noal

  3. Noal: Please email me and I'll see what I can do.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
