In The Mod - Buddy DeFranco

Chelsea Bridge
In The Mod
The Glenn Miller Orchestra
Under The Direction Of Buddy DeFranco
RCA Victor LSP-3819

From the back cover: Chelsea Bridge is the haunting instrumental written by Billy Strayhorn for the Duke Ellington orchestra. Buddy DeFranco's contemporary arrangement captures the exotic Ellington flavor while incorporating references to the Miller style.

Nice sample, but the set is more "mood" than "mod".
