Leonard Reed was a prolific song writer throughout his life. Perhaps one of his last works was "32 Bar Riff", which he wrote especially to accompany his Shim Sham dances. As a gift to Leonard, Rusty brought into the recording studio his favorite maestro of 1920s and '30's music, Mr. Dean Mora ( As Rusty was to Leonard's Shim Shams, Dean was to Leonard's compositions. Dean brought in his "Mora's Modern Swingtet" musicians, including the amazing Brian Atkinson on vibes. Dean Moran arranged Leonard's "32 Bar Riff" and the resulting recording is a wonderful testiment to Leonard Reed's songwriting ability.(CD)
