Description
Lovely song by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart 1937, which i've always played and sung for my own amusement...... then when i heard Sylvia's classy sophisticated (as always ) version, I just had to sing to it. I asked her consent and she gave it and here we are.... hope you like this version.

In my humble opinion, your vocals on this are one of the best I've heard from you. So much feeling, so much honesty, so much talent! I think you've added a special magic to this. I love it!
Sincerely, Sylvia.

A great
partnership Rodgers had with Hart, quite different from his also great one with Hammerstein.
Such a lovely and laid back song and performance guys.
Cheers,
Charlie

Now this opens like the RnB of the 70's
Which is an amazing feeling Maurice. Sing it my friend. The feel here is a little Satcmo and all that. Wonderful Production and Musical Offering ..Sing it man..Wow! I think this is your very best performance I have heard. Sylvia your music is Grand.

Enjoy the
way the song starts out. I think this is a terrific sound that fits your style of music. But I don't think you can do a song with out feeling good after listening to your tunes. Like the arrangement as well as the terrific singing! Like the little musical treats you throw in in subtle ways through out the song from horns and high tones etc. I enjoy listening to artist that make me feel good after I hear it and you HAVE that gift !!! Way to go and being a vital part of MJ and ICOMP !!!! And terrific collar with LIlmom too!!!

It was all down to
Sylvia who posted this as an instrumental and all I did was sing after waiting for a good day to reach those highs ha ha...... I love how you say it gives you a lift.... that's all we could ask, but thank you immensely for the very kind words which at my age is very encouraging, best regards M

You balladeer you
Really Maurice, where has this tune been hiding in your repertoire?? What a great treatment of the classic that clearly holds its own place amongst all of the covers I've ever heard. So if Sylvia's version is classy, this is classy squared. Which is pretty staggeringly classy actually.

Also, I really like your new avatar photo. Very joyous!

Cheers,
Doug

flattering Doug and i welcome every word ha ha... truly, I really did strain at this one it was so high for me, but as i always say, sometimes a little strain can come across as emotion and it does seem to have worked in this case... thanks so much..... glad you like my new avatar too; I thought I'd better update it then people will know what I really look like these days LOL, regards M
