"What fresh Hell is this?" We begin with songs by Dorothy Parker, who, though best known for her sharp wisecracks, turned out several luscious standards in her day. In the second hour, we salute the great Count Basie then usher in the Leonard Bernstein centennial celebration; plus there is a bumper crop of new releases to share.
