|Rusty Meets Hoagy (Mercury MG 20173)|
I don't play piano and I don't smoke cigarettes, but if I did both I'd try to cultivate the dangly, gangly, squinty-eyed, devil may care vibe that Hoagy Carmichael has going for him on this album cover.
Me: "Hey Hoagy, nice job writing the music for "Stardust," "Heart and Soul," and "Georgia on My Mind."
Hoagy: "Who me? Yeah, whatever."
I picked up this record at a thrift store and was so taken with the cover it didn't bother me that the record inside wasn't Rusty Meets Hoagy. I had to have it.
I'd like very much to hear it someday.
