May 20 — BABY ELEPHANT WALK, Henry Mancini (1962)

imageA dinner conversation with Luke about plants called elephant ears led to talk of planting elephant seeds of all manner — trunk, tusk, belly — with the hopes of baby elephants one day growing in the garden.

But tonight’s conversation led me to an album I’ve rarely encountered in the last 45 years.
