    I hadn't heard it played for quite a while, but recently found an old record of Jim Shepherd playing it with Dyke. Made me want to find a copy -

    No - you can't, because that would be copyright infringement.

    Dont know how many people know this ( or are interested to know ! ) , but Harold Moss originaly wrote this as a trombone solo and was going to call it ' Jenny' after his daughter . Then the publishers said they already had a solo called ' Jenny Wren ' asked if he could come up with another title , so it then became ' The Nightingale ' .

    ( Takes Anorak off ) .

    Cheers Mark

    Lovely to see this post. Harold Moss was my grandfather and did indeed write it for my aunt, his eldest child, Mary, whom he always called Jenny (and I always knew as Jenny). He did originally write it as a trombone solo, because apparently he used to play pieces on the trombone that could usually only be played on the cornet. How did you know that he wanted to name the piece after Jenny?
    Best regards
