I'd just read that great piece on Leigh Kamman's retirement in the Twin
Cities, when I reached for an Oscar Pettiford record (he would have been
85 today) - and the first song I see is "Kamman's A-Comin'', a tribute
to him from 1955!  The notes say Leigh and O.P. were childhood friends.
And Kamman had been doing jazz on the radio for 16 years by then -
amazing.  Thanks for posting the piece.
