More great songwriters, more great artists. One great set of standards deserves another. It kicks off with one of my favorite songs ever, which was, along with the movie Casablanca, the inspiration for these mixes. "So set 'em up Joe/I've got a little story that you oughta know."

Let me jump on the band wagon and say this is great!

OH yes yes yes. This is absolutely wonderful. I've got about half of these on vinyl, but none on CD, so if you'd be up for a trade . . .

Maintaining your usual high standards, I see . . .

I LOVED your "Standards" set #1 & I can see that this one would be every bit as great. Some people might think the Jimmy Durante finish is a joke ending, but actually I think that performance is pretty soulful.
I'd trade for this in a heartbeat!
