Matt Dennis - moving into suave and debonair territory.

From the Chi-Chi Club in New York City tonight, a live set by smooth, suave and debonair Matt Dennis and his Trio. Not a household name these days, but Dennis was a successful song writer with a lot of Jazz Standards to his credit over a long and productive career.

A mellow and casual half hour, compliments of the NBC All-Star Parade of Bands series from June 13, 1955.
