The Girl From Ipanema - Jimmy Davis & Norma Lee

Way Beyond Today
The Girl From Ipanema
By Jimmy Davis & Norma Lee
Wyncote SW 9028
1964 Cameo-Parkway Records

From the back cover: All the songs in this album feature the sweet saxophone of Jimmy Davis. You will especially enjoy the vocal renditions of Norma Lee on the songs "The Girl From Ipanema," "Bossa Nova, It's The Things," "Way Beyond Today," "One Note Samba," and "Somewhere".

Budget collection of jazzy tracks which, in fact, seem to feature Jimmy Davis and the light bouncing vocals of Norma Lee on side one only. Tracks from side two were apparently collected together from a completely different, but pretty hip, recording session.
