Billie Holiday

Fine and Mellow (1957)
(this may take a moment or three to load, but patience -- as we have daily the opportunity to discover -- oftentimes has its rewards.)

On 8 December, 1957, Billie Holiday performed on the CBS TV show The Sound of Jazz with a band that included (in order of first appearance, I think I got them right):

Coleman Hawkins (tenor sax), Lester Young (tenor sax), Dick Dickenson (trombone), Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax), Doc Cheatham (trumpet), Ben Webster (tenor sax), Roy Eldridge (trumpet).

Fine and Mellow, indeed.
