I was raised on this one, literally from the day I was born. It's weird how albums are 'valued' in the vinyl market...this one, though an original press from 1960, can be had for a few dollars. I can't seem to find any chart positions or sales numbers linked to it, but as good as it is, I'm sure it had to be popular. Heck, I'm still playing it often almost 58 years later... Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross! - The Hottest New Group In Jazz (And I would love to hear some of these 'singers' these days try to do this)
1B 6 eye promo label pressing of their Columbia debut album. Playback info: Technics SL-3200 turntable Shure M35X cartridge

I never heard of them though that may be the same Annie Ross who later did Broadway.

@topffer It was a bit rough trying to correlate the words with the singing, but I liked that
