Don't Smoke in Bed + African Mailman

 
 

Bethlehem 11055 (1959 US)

"Don't Smoke in Bed" is from the chick's LP. She gives the oldie an attractive torch reading over excellent combo support. Strong side bears watching.
"African Mailman" was cleffed by the artist. It's an inventive melody that is accorded a jazz piano treatment with good combo support. Afro-Cuban rhythm makes for a danceable side.
-Billboard 9 November 1959
