2 LP ON 1 CD Plus 3 BONUS TRACKS
This edition compiles the only two albums Peggy Lee made with the Nelson Riddle orchestra, "Jump for Joy" (Capitol Records ST- 979), and "The Man I Love" (Capitol Records T-864). While the first was both arranged and conducted by Riddle, the second was arranged by Riddle but conducted by none other than Frank Sinatra. The personnel on the two albums are very similar, featuring such star instrumentalists as Harry “Sweets” Edison, Pete Candoli, Buddy Collette, Jimmy Rowles, Lou Levy, and Mel Lewis.
Three singles from the same sessions that were not included on the original albums have been added as a bonus.
