The Two Sides of Lyttelton

Humphrey Lyttelton in 1954 compared with his very different band of 6 years later

Humphrey Lyttelton changed the sound of his band between the 1954 recording and the 1960 version. We have both 'sounds.' There's Fay Claasen with the WDR Big Band and a Betty Carter tune. Louise Rogers sings Walt Disney in the shape of Alice in Wonderland. Red Norvo and Eddie Condon appear by courtesy of some V-Disc compilations while Madelaine Peyroux sings a song that was a Charlie Chaplin original.
