You're a Heavenly Thing
I love the subtle swing. Great solo. The bends give that solo a hint of steel guitar. Great vocal!

You're a Heavenly Thing
These old classics you post have a very strong structure. I also get the sense that melody was more important back then then it is now. This song is no exception. Another great vocal, and I dug the guitar work.

I know
I've never heard this song before. You did a beautiful job singing. You were born for this. I wish you could sing in front of record crowds, Michael. Folks don't know what they're missing. That's a neat pic, too. Thanks.

I can't do it as well as ol' Mel Torme did (but then again, who could top that guy?) but I'm so happy you liked it--this song has a special charm and romantic touch to it that has always appealed to me. Thanks again Dani--you take care now! Moe

A bang up job...
Hi Michael. Like many others it seems, I don't think I am familiar with this song. As usual though, it didn't matter. You did a bang up job. Your vocals and phrasing are assured and uniquely MJK, as always. Thanks for the posting. Take care, Peter.

Thanks very much Peter!
I toiled with this off and on for perhaps a week and Saturday morning, I just sat and did it and I guess I'm fairly satisfied with most of it--and that was in one take--quite remarkable for me. Then again, in the past, I've messed around with these things over a period of time and then one day, all the ideas and stuff just come together almost at once. Much obliged and great to hear from you--you take good care now! Michael

Yessir. This is great Michael.
Well done my friend.
You really have the golden voice; I liked the vibrato towards the end. Nice touch.

Yanno, one of these days, I'm gonna lock myself in the bathroom and gargle for one hour with old, rusty, single-edged razor blades to get rid of some of this excessive smoothness--you don't know how bad it is for me really! Thanks again Dave--hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself. Take care now, Michael

You
sing these songs so easily Michael, you are a natural talent.
I'm not familiar with this one but I really like it and it sounds great.
I love the guitar and the piano is nice, a really great performance and vocal.
Very much enjoyed.

Hey Bob!
I first heard this song when Mel Torme sang it when he was here in town with jazz pianist George Shearing. I remember there was about 4 seconds of silence before the applause came in--it was one of "those" kinds of performances; very memorable. Thanks for listening and thanks also for leaving some most encouraging words on this deal! You take care now--Michael

Excellent rendition. Easy on the ears and sounding so good. Nice one. Thanks for keeping us uninformed hacks learning about what makes the classics, classic.

I don't consider anybody a hack, regardless of what genre they work in as long as they are giving their best or near best (and in my line, I'm not that far removed from being a hack myself--this I know!) Thanks again and take good care now, Michael
