Listening to Prestige 12a: Harry Lim Records

There are certainly a lot of record producers who drink a lot of Java, but only one who was from Java -- Harry Lim, who produced a number of jazz records for Keynote Records in the mid-40s, and then started his own short-lived label in 1949--Harry Lim Records. Their initial release was the Al Haig all-star session introducing a young Blossom Dearie. I'm not sure how many more there were, but not many. The Prestige re-release was considerably later, well into their 7000 series, along with other early Al Haig / Stan Getz waxings. I'm still looking for the Blossom Dearie cuts.
