You can read The Mary Kaye Trio Story at this site. http://preview.heritagemakers.com/hmpreviewer/gallery/85728.pdf The recent discover of The Mary Kaaihue Trio is prior to Norman being part of the Trio. Here's a link to that private video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtSkyE9xhf4&feature=youtu.be The sound quality is bad because of the deterioration since 1945.
