from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 271:

I also listened to mood-music orchestras a lot, like Robert Farnon's orchestra from England. He'd take a tune like "Laura" and—although he might have some corny things in there—by the time he got to the third chorus he'd go all kinds of places with the harmony. I learned a lot of progressions from listening to his music
