1959 pilot for Lenny Bruce TV series

, here's a clip from Lenny Bruce's 1959 TV show pilot, The World of Lenny Bruce
, shown once on New York local television.
Lambert, Hendricks and Ross were a part of that pilot, so even though I've posted this link before, here's one of my favorite music clips, the Dave Lambert Quintet audition in 1964
after the breakup of LH&R. Clip (from D.A. Pennebaker's Lambert & Co.
) shows Lambert, Mary Vonnie, Sarah Boatner, Leslie Dorsey and David Lucas.
Any possibility of a Lambert, Hendricks and Ross reunion came to an end two years later when Dave Lambert was killed by a truck backing up while he was changing a flat tire on the turnpike. There was a reunion around 1978 when Hendricks and Ross got together on Soundstage with Eddie Jefferson singing the Lambert parts.
