Tommy could easily have said "Oh, good show, I'll record it with the 78-piece 
BBC Symphony, don't you know" and that might have been the end of it as far as 
he was concerned. (No I don't know how many pieces the BBC Symphony has..Mr. 
Carli?) Could be another Lieberman Concerto for Jazz Band and Symphony 
Orchestra, which isn't on too many people's top ten lists.

The person to check with is Michael Gray. I'll see if he has any information on it.
