a twist of Lemmon

One of my favorite performers is Jack Lemmon. His 1959 album A Twist of Lemmon is fantastic! His vocals are great ( it sounds like Jack Lemmon singing in tune) but his real strength is his piano playing. I think his son wrote a biography about him under the same title. Hey, where did the triple-threat actor/singer/dancer go? Gene Kelly was really the only one to pull it off with precision AND a little masculinity. He also has a great singing voice ( Our Love is Here to Stay... its wonderful...or should I say ...S'wonderful?)
