Sandra Manning Sings Harper Valley P.T.A.
Modern Sound MS 598
Here we have another budget record from Modern Sound, a company who released a number of albums by nameless studio artists. Frequently the album covers featured no art, but only the track titles in large type. On this cover, however, MS features the vocalist's name. MS must have thought they had found an artist worth marketing.
Piano Interpretations By Bud Powell
Norgran Records MG N-1077
From the back cover: Powell's trio includes George Duvivier, bassist who has toured with such artists as Pearl Bailey, Lena Horne and Billy Eckstine; and drummer Art Taylor, who has also been heard with Coleman Hawkins and Buddy De Franco.
I was drawn to this album by the dynamic cover art by David Stone Martin
