Autumn foliage photo from CosHarbour’s back patio…… does it get any prettier? I don’t think so.
As I typed the headline I was trying to sing the lyrics to the great old tune, Googled it and came up with many renditions of it. I can’t decide which I like the best. Billie Holiday made it famous I think but Ella and Louie, wow. But there’s Frank, and a few others.
To me, NO ONE ever ever sang better than Ella Fitzgerald but I was weaned on her records – my dad loved her timing and lilt. I agree.
But of course, Frank, his timing was superb too.
Even this rendition, without lyrics, is lyrical, by the amazing Modern Jazz Quartet
Interesting that not one of the four versions I included show actual footage of the performance – just the audio. I hope someone has it somewhere, maybe there’s a museum of music, because this generation has to see what real talent is. Justin Beiber doesn’t cut it in my book.
