Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. However, this original cover is not featured with the download.

This set showcases the smooth and jazzy vocal harmonies of Jackie and Roy backed by Holman's swinging big band sound. Dixieland is a uniquely arranged cover and would be my favorite harmony. However, Jackie terrific voice is featured solo on three numbers including a dramatic cover of Angel Eyes.
