Mid Week Dearieme

A bit more from the baleful Bechet. Here he plays Gershwin’s great lullaby/aria.

And here he takes on one of Cole Porter’s finest.

Next, a song by N. Swanstone, Charles R. McCarron and Carey Morgan published in1919: so a jazz warhorse. And none the worse for that.

Shall we end with another warhorse, this time a return to his quartet with Muggsy Spanier in 1940?

Ah hell no. Let’s have a blues as an encore.

    While you two were chatting I just bought a Bechet CD from Amazon. Had to have Summertime on it – my main criterion.

    Different version, not in the same league:


    Had a version of Love for Sale by Palm Court Theatre Orchestra [Chandos] – can’t remember the singer. Linda Murray.
