timmuky's current selection is:
The Way You Look Tonight
by Peggy Lee, Benny Goodman
Haunting, aching, gorgeously understated.

Mel Powell is credited on celeste, an instrument I had to look up, but it adds another genius layer....

Just going to add what I added to my post for "Where or When," recorded at the same magical session:

Peggy Lee was 20 years old (!) (maybe 21) when she recorded this, and where or when, on Christmas Eve 1941, a couple of weeks after Pearl Harbor....

"We did some sextette numbers -- Where Or When, and The Way You Look Tonight -- at the Liederkranz Hall. Benny wanted to use one microphone for all musicians as well as the singer, which called for more gymnastics. [The microphone was hanging high, quite a few feet away from the floor.] Lou McGarity, playing trombone, would first crawl up in the air (on boxes), then we somehow managed to remain relatively silent and hold our breath in passing each other as I crawled up for my vocal and he crawled down. Those recordings may seem rather moody, and somehow they were, but it was also, after all, a little dangerous ... either of us could have crashed to the floor. But if Benny said do it, we did it."

Countrypolitan, ex-cosmopolitan (NYC, London, Sydney, Minneapolis). Currently obsessing over pop jazz vocalists like June Christy, Billie Holiday, Ella, Hoagie, Satch, Anita O'Day and kinda going through a major Peggy Lee phase. Also stan for current pop divas like Charli, Rosalia, Kesha, and Sky; and will never lose my love for country roots Charlie Rich, Merle, Milton Brown!!
