April 1, 2016 / Podcast

In the fourth episode of Pretty in Podcast, I break away from my John Hughes’ series to talk about the little known “Dot Sessions,” the lost recordings of Count Basie and Jerry Nelson (The Count from Sesame Street) from 1967, recorded at the same time as Count Basie’s Board of Directors with The Mills Brothers. Only a single copy of a 45 is known to exist. This is the story of how those recordings came to be.
