I was inspired to start working on this when Diana Rigg died a few months back. I loved Diana Rigg, I loved her in “The Avengers.” I love James Bond (This was from ”On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”). And, of course, I love Louis Armstrong. Recorded near the end of his life, it does not feature his trumpet, only his amazing voice. This version features my voice... What started as a simple inspiration grew into something more. I hope you enjoy it.
