Great American Songbook renditions by two strummin’ thrummin’ chums... That tenor sax croons like it was an echo of Bing Crosby... the audience couldn’t keep knees still or toes from tapping... Feet, fingers and heads of the audience also bobbed along... the audience sang along softly... easy on the ear and sweet on the memory... when are Pete and Ted coming back?
