And even better, he was an arranger for Count Basie. I had the chance to see the orchestra in the 1970's with Basie in a wheelchair. I sure he wasn't with Basie but he must have been a great arranger to wotk with such a fantastic Jazz Orchestra.
I'm very excited to pick up the DVD of this... tomorrow. Harvey Birdman is my favourite Adult Swim show (unless Futurama counts) and it was hard to find on TV up here, even before I cheaped out and opted for only the most basic of cable packages.
