The Gellers met in Los Angeles in 1950 and were married in New York, shortly after Herb had quit the Claude Thornhill orchestra. They stayed together for eight years, but these are the only recordings Herb did with Lorraine. They formed an exceptional tandem and their playing carried a distinct sound, a harmonic quality that was neither his or hers. This CD wants to recover that feeling because, although she passed away a mere three years after the present sides, one thing remains certain: Herb and Lorraine Geller were two of a kind.
