Classy tribute to a mentor......
24 July 2013 | by renu812See all my reviews

Starting with a monologue written by Johnny, Dave pays tribute with a great delivery and anecdotes from himself and guest Peter Lasally, Johnny's longtime exec producer (and now Letterman's exec). Musical tribute from Doc Severinsen and some ringers (Tommy Newsome and Ed Shaughnessy) from the old Tonight Show Band sitting in with Paul Shaffer and playing "Here's That Rainy Day". My love of big band music pretty much started with the Tonight Show, from which I discovered a lot of jazz greats. I am so glad I downloaded this performance off Usenet, since I have no idea if Dave will ever release this stuff on DVD.
