Goin' Places - Margaret Whiting

Runnin' Wild (Rugolo)
Margaret Whiting
Goin' Places
Dot DLP 25072

Working on this album with Whiting are a few Atomic Age heavy weights including: Frank Comstock, Pete King, Jonny Mandel, Skip Martin, Marty Paich and Pete Rugolo. The creative styles mesh well from track to track.

The Dot "Sterophonic" label on this album cover is a fluorescent orange sticker (my scanner doesn't scan fluorescents).

From the back cover: You can attribute Maggie's fine musicianship to the influence of her famed composer-father, the late Richard Whiting; or to the inimitable touch of her first employer and professional colleague, Johnny Mercer.
