My dad's own composition, Guardian Angels, was recorded by Mario Lanza and released on the 199 RCA Album, Christmas With Mario Lanza. He may have also played the harp on this recording, which was taken from an earlier session. (Lanza sang the song to his kids at night.)

Dad definitely played on Mahalia Jackson's 1963 Columbia album, Let's Pray Together, and again, it was Guardian Angels. He and Jackson had worked together at least two previous times - on Milton Berle's Kraft Music Hall on January 14, 1959, and on The Red Skelton Hour, September 20, 1962.

** Dad's photo is on the cover of my second jazz album, "My Son, The Folk Swinger" (1963) but he doesn't actually perform on the album.**
