Now time for another musical interlude. This is that old standard Sweet Lorraine, but what a band performing it: Nat King Cole on piano, and he was fabulous. He played the piano like it was effortless, like he was born knowing how. Buddy Rich on drums, and nobody was better. Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Eddie Safranski on bass, Lawrence Brown on trombone, Harry Carney on baritone sax- all greats- and the vocalist- the incomparable Frank Sinatra. They called themselves the Metronome All-Star Band, and the year was 1946.
