"I Want To Be Loved (But Only By You)" is a 1947 ballad written by and recorded by Savannah Churchill and The Senimentals. The single was Savannah Churchill's most successful release on the R&B charts, spending six months on the chart and reaching number one on the R&B Juke Box chart.

Us Three is the second album by American jazz pianist Horace Parlan featuring performances recorded and released on the Blue Note label in 1960. The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars and stated "The proceedings here are straight-ahead with some cool soul-jazz touches... This is a fine effort from an underappreciated trio".

Horace ParlanHorace Parlan has overcome physical disability and thrived as a pianist despite it. His right hand was partially crippled by polio in his childhood, but Parlan's made frenetic, highly rhythmic right hand phrases part of his characteristic style, contrasting them with striking left-hand chords. He's also infused blues and R&B influences into his style, playing in a stark, sometimes somber fashion. Parlan has always cited Ahmad Jamal and Bud Powell as prime influences.
He began playing in R&B bands during the '50s, joining Charles Mingus' group from 1957 to 1959 following a move from Pittsburgh to New York. Mingus aided his career enormously, both through his recordings and his influence. Parlan played with Booker Ervin in 1960 and 1961, then in the Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis-Johnny Griffin quintet in 1962. Parlan played with Rahsaan Roland Kirk from 1963 to 1966, and had a strong series of Blue Note recordings in the '60s.
