Here’s another album in my dad’s collection that featured a group of jazz musicians recording an album before playing the same music on live TV days later. This time, the live TV show was a drama about a jazz trumpet player in the 1920s. Several of the musicians you’ll hear had speaking parts in the show as well as playing some great music.

So get ready to hear Ruby Braff as Spencer Lee playing mostly jazz standards in Volume 140: The Magic Horn.
