Milt Jackson - " 'Round Midnight"

Remember "Namesake"? Well, here is that A-side that I mentioned way back in May of 2011. Hard to believe it's been over three years since I started this blog.

"'Round Midnight" is a 1944 jazz standard by pianist Thelonious Monk. It is the most-recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician.

The Drifters - "If You Don't Come Back"

The A side of "Rat Race" by The Drifters, features Johnny Moore on lead vocals.
Although it was the A side the song did not fare as well as the B-Side which made it to number 71 on the U.S. Pop Chart.
