Bebop Spoken There

Victor Wooten: "People don't expect to have bass players get together and sound like music and not just like a bunch of elephants" (JazzTimes April, 2022)

Billie Holiday - P.S. I Love You

10 comments :

Lance said...

Thought this would make an alternative Valentine's Day song - I think it's one of the greatest love songs ever but we all have our favourites - let's hear about them.

Steve Andrews said...

Nice - she even makes that terrible line: "I burnt a hole in the dining room table" sound convincing! Apart from that it's a great, poignant, song. I also love the version by Mary Ann McCall with Woody Herman's 1946 (I think without checking...) Herd, which has a great arrangement, and some excellent alto by Woodrow.

Lance said...

That's the line that makes the song - lifts it out of the ordinary! Yes Woody's version with Mary Ann was also excellent.

Liz said...

well Lance, you know my choice " My one and only love!

Debra Milne said...

You Go To My Head, & Save Your Love For Me is a current favourite..

Jude Murphy said...

There are any amount of swing, soul and Brazilian songs that I might have gone for but this is pretty close to my ideal Valentine song - right in the gaps between folk and jazz. And in French - what better?. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-KBHnTsO-g

Ooh is that the Nancy Wilson and Cannonball version of Save Your Love for Me? I nearly said the same one to Lance until something a bit folksier popped into my head.

I'm 10 minutes out of Valentines day with this suggestion, but I like 'You'd be so nice to Come Home to'

Sorry Lance! Missed seeing your message until just now! I have so many! My Romance, But Beautiful, Lush Life (not really a love song, but...love it anyway!).
So many more...

When I Fall in Love is my fave by far.
