Here’s an interesting album in my dad’s collection. It is filled with stars of the jazz era. It’s from a special recording session for a TV show that went live a couple days later. As we’ll find out, that show was groundbreaking. So get ready to hear an all-star list of who’s who of jazz in the late 1950s with Volume 121: Jazz Sounds.

Here’s the video of the televised show from four days after this album was recorded.
