I've never seen this video before. It's great. I would like to see the entire video. Any idea who is singing "Mood Indigo" at 3 minutes in?

An original mono reel-to-reel tape of this concert was recently in one of the on-line auctions. I decided not to bid. It was released by the White House Press Office, or a similarly-named entity.

The vocalist on Mood Indigo is Mary Mayo.

Not on ebay. It was a lot in an auction. The way it was packaged indicated that it was not a unique master tape, but rather a reel to reel intended for distribution.

BTW, this concert was commercially released on cd...on Blue Note.

Nixon used to blab about the aliens a lot, the only reason he was read into stuff was beacuse he was in the Eisenhower admn but even through his presidental years he never kept the lid shut.  In fact, the singlemost credible civillian confirmation of aliens was when Nixon bought Jackie Gleason to see, which changed his life forever.  Thats right- the great one happens to be one of, if not the only non-contract worker civilians in history, ever to have this experience, which took place at an AFB in florida.  this is fact

Well worth it. Earl Hines steals the show, IMO.
