Woody Herman
"Twelve Shades of Blue" (Vinyl)

Released in 1955, this Columbia six-eye was a fun find.  Sometimes its good to find records that remind me why this hobby began in the first place.

Woody Herman's orchestra is in full-swoon with twelve songs that all mention the color blue in the title.  There have definitely been thinner concepts for an album as the tone is decidedly laid-back, perfect for that cheek-to-cheek dancing I've heard so much about.
