Midnight On Cloud 69

Midnight On Cloud 69 by George Shearing
Released: Jan 1949
Label: Savoy
This endearing set combines Shearing's world famous quintet and Norvo's less financially rewarding trio recordings with Tal Farlow and Charles Mingus. The music illustrates the perfect marriage of bop experimentation and public appeal, though the exact meaning of the phrase "midnight on cloud 69" may be lost to the sands of time.
