ODDS & ENDS

Simple mix and concept this time out: “Autobiography,” with old favorites like “Sweet Leilani” and “Gregorio Cortez” and new hits in the making such as “Teen-Ex,” “Ham Boogie,” and more. They all go in the Odds & Ends tumbler and shake out ready for immediate mambo. We’re confident you will play these over and over and that before long they will become your old favorites too.

  1. This is great. Up to now I'd only ever heard his performance on The Last Waltz.

    1. Thanks. He's made a couple of albums worth of new recordings of his "classics." And seems to be having fun doing so. To me, this new performance beats the one on his 1957 Fantasy LP.
