SLIM GAILLARD'S season in Covent Garden, and his subsequent appearances around the country, will attract not only those nostalgic lor the 32nd Street era but also those young hipsters who, thanks to a timely reissue, have recently discovered the arcane pleasures of his Opera in Vout. an album recorded in 1951 and devoted to the joys of Gaillard's nonsensical version of bebop.
