This is an arrangement of Hoagy Carmichael's swingin' tune, made famous by renowned Indigenous vocalist Mildred Bailey. It was commissioned by Julia Allane Keefe for her flagship Big Band project, the Julia Keefe Indigenous Big Band. This arrangement was written in a short span of just two days, the week of the concert — and I am very fortunate that Julia tagged me on to be a part of this project.
Recorded by Bryan Cowan; Fishbeyn-Buonaspina Composition Collective
