Dpolletta asked:

How do you pronounce the pianist Jimmy Rowles name?
Does it rhyme with "rolls,"  or  does the "Row" part sound more  like "cow?"

I've assumed "rolls," largely because he once recorded an album with bassist
Ray Brown for Concord, titled something like "Brown - Rowles."  The cover
pictured...yes, a brown Rolls-Royce...
