To Duke With Love - Art Farmer

With Duke's "birthday" rolling around at the end of the month, I thought I might post some of my favorite Duke related stuff. This first is probably the least rare of all but as I was listening to the records I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed this one. At one time I had dismissed this record. A nice quartet date with some standards and a few surprises.

Thanks much for this! Like the previous poster, I've always felt more Farmer was a very good thing.

Thank you for this gem. It has been a nice addition as I listen to music of Cedar Walton, may he rest in peace.
