April 1 —Spike Jones’s special version of Laura

Spike Jones plays his special version of  Laura.  What could be more appropriate for April Fool’s Day, April 1st?  It’s that day of the year again.   Presented in loving memory of my cousin Walter.

Thanks  to BassetHoundTrio for the You Tube and thanks to Jim Hollowaty  for whom  this record has  a special meaning.

Art Tatum gets tonight off,  he’ll be back next week.
