Bob Thompson - The Sound of Style

MMM Nice! (LPS-2117) was recorded Aug. 1959. Sexy, mischievous fun; very jazzy. "MMM Nice!" was uttered by either Marni Nixon (who played a nun in The Sound of Music), Peggy Clark, or Sally Sweetland, a trio that sang on all the records. The song Joie de Vivre expresses Bob's fascination with the freedom and fun of French culture. The cover girl is Sandra Warner who graced the covers of Martin Denny albums as well.

Selected Personnel: Shelly Manne (drums), Larry Bunker (drums, perc.), Frank Capp (drums), Emil Richards (perc.), Bud Shank (Sax), Frank Rosolino (trombone), Ken Shroyer (trombone), Don Fagerquist (trumpet), Al Porcino (trumpet), Alton Hendrickson (guitar), Red Callender (horns).
