Description
I've been feelin this way. Seems like I've been missing folk lately. You know who you are.

Collaboration between SylviaD (aka Lilmom) and I.

Sylvia performed, bass guitar and piano on Yamaha Clavinova and the Korg keyboard.

"Baby Won't You Please Come Home" is a blues song written by Charles Warfield and Clarence Williams in 1919 and is now in Public Domain. The song's authorship is disputed; Warfield claims that he was the sole composer of the song.
The song has been covered by a large number of musicians and has become a jazz standard. The first hit version was Bessie Smith's 1923 recording, which stayed on four weeks on the charts peaking at #6.

Lyrics
I've got the blues,
I feel so lonely;
I'd give the world
If I could only
Make you understand;
It truly would be grand.
I'm gonna telephone my baby,
Ask him won't you please come home.
Oh, when you gone
I'm worried all day long.
 
Baby, won't you please come home?
Baby, won't you please come home?
I have tried in vain
Nevermore to call your name.
When you left you broke my heart,
That will never make us part.
Every hour in the day you will hear me say,
Baby, won't you please come home?
I mean, baby, won't you please come home?
 
Baby, won't you please come home?
'Cause your mama's all alone.
I have tried in vain
Nevermore to call your name;
When you left you broke my heart;
That will never make us part;
Landlord's gettin' worse, I gotta move May the first.
Baby, won't you please come home?
I need money.
Baby, won't you please come home?

Love it! I can think I'm in an old neighborhood bar drinking some *Mezcal* and enjoying songs from the past! The sax is great!

Oooooh, a hurtin' song
Low-down, laid-back vocals over Sylvia's languorous piano stylings; the sax almost brings tears. Nice mashup/update on the lyrics.

Well now,
Isn't this just a fun revival! I think this might have been my first collaboration on Macjams! And we have shared many good musical moments since. Thanks for bringing this up again, Andy.

Love the sax
Nice slow groove. Shades of Fats Waller in the vocal and the tenor is just like I like it - smooth and mellow, great tone, and with plenty of nice licks.

Liked it from the first notes of the intro Andy and Sylvia. Great sounding track. Wonderful balance in the recording. Everything sits in the mix oh so nicely, including the understated vocal. Fine musicianship. First rate post. Congratulations to you both. Kind regards, Peter.
