Felix Mendelssohn was a one time British band leader (he recorded a few tunes with Al Bowlly) in the 30's, who decided what the world needed was a British Sol Hoopii who was a descendant of a famous German composer, and by God, that's what he gave the world!! And good it is too!! This Lp is a collection of the jazz standards the band recorded (as apposed to Hawaiian standards) and all the 'good old good ones' are present!
