3/6. Russell Davies continues a tribute to the supremely popular but temperamentally difficult trombonist and band leader

Defining recordings include Song of India, Marie, BoogieWoogie, On the Sunny Side of the Street, Opus One and, with Frank Sinatra and the Pied Pipers, I'll Never Smile Again and There Are Such Things.
