Lionel Hampton - "Sometimes I'm Happy"

Here is a nice little swinger for all the vibraphone lovers out there from the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. This rare 45 was released on Hampton's own Glad Records (later Glad-Hamp). I believe the Glad is for his wife Gladys, who ran the business side of his music.
This cut would fit right in with an episode of Mad Men. Shake up a martini and enjoy!
