The Swingin's Mutual!

An obvious choice for a fan of mid century modern furniture, but this also happens to be a great musical album.  Of the many 50s-60s jazz albums, I listen to George Shearing the most.  One of the things that makes his music so much fun is that he often got together with popular female vocalists of the time to sing on the record. 

In this case, Nancy Wilson sings standards with him on a few tracks while he tickles the ivory on others.  What makes this record unique is the visual appeal of the chairs by Herman Miller (which are credited on the bottom of the cover).  If you like to dance with someone, put this record on and dance.  If you like mid century furniture, frame it and hang it in your media room.
