  3. Looking forward to this one!

    It's Frank's world. We're just posting in it.

  4. In the living room, tapping my foot in anticipation...

    It's Frank's world. We're just posting in it.

  5. Absolutely loving these songs from Frankie. Some folks from our family are not familiar with his music, and are flabbergasted at the moment.

    How glad the many millions . . .

    . . . of Anabels and Lillians would be . . . to capture me . . .

    My God he is in good voice as he sings the seldom-heard opening verse to "I've Got a Crush on You." For the fun of it I just Googled the song title. The first offering this day is the early version from the Columbia "Greatest Hits" album of 78 rpm records. And the accompanying lyric is transcribed from Frank's late in life duet with Barbara Streisand, complete with their sung patter: "Yes, I've got a crush, my Barbra on you / "YOU will make me blush, Francis. Yes! I've got a crush on YOU . . . "

    To enjoy after this wonderful show, the early Columbia years version.

    "The saddest words that anyone has ever said are . . . Lord! What might have been!"

    Sorry Frank Sinatra. My favorite song on this wonderful program (for personal reasons) is sung by your son: THE PEOPLE THAT YOU NEVER GET TO LOVE. I never heard another singer's version of this obscure Rupert Holmes (words & music) song from exactly 40 years ago. But I could never imagine a better reading. Yes, THIS will always be "my favorite song sung by Frankie." He owns it. His vocal timbre was never better; his interpretation is simply . . . perfect.

    Every stanza of the lyric is casually brilliant. I'm partial to composers who are my age. In this case, a composer born three weeks before me -- February 24, 1947. Famous, of course, for another song that was No. 1 in the U.S. and Canada that summer of 1979. (A song with two titles, Wiki reminds us)

    'Rupert Holmes (born David Goldstein on February 24, 1947) is a British-American composer, singer-songwriter, musician, dramatist and author. He is widely known for the hit singles "Escape (The Piņa Colada Song)" (1979) and "Him" (1980).'


    We're hooked at the very first words of this song:

    You're browsing through a second hand bookstore
    And you see her in non-fiction V through Y
    She looks up from World War II
    And then you catch her, catching you -- catching her eye

    I've often thought that lyrics are mainly of two types: "Tell me" (something) or "Show me" and as the MY FAIR LADY song of that name reminds us, SHOW ME is better every time. Case in point:

    (The lyrics are transcribed just below the video, "posted 2 years ago by John Paradise." Thank you John.)

    One of my favorite opening lines ever was a nice extra to all of the wonderful selections tonight - “How did all these people get in my room?“

    Splendid as always, Nancy! Happy Valentines Day to you and your family
    Lucky be a lady tonight.

    Listening to "Nancy for Frank" the Valentine's Day show and playing, as I type this -- one of my favorite ballads. I'd forgotten that this was another song that (like "Don't Worry 'bout Me") might not have seen the light of day without our favorite singer's intervention -- till jazz giants could work their magic with the wonderful melody.

    Wikipedia says

    "My One and Only Love" is a popular song with music written by Guy Wood and lyrics by Robert Mellin. Published in 1952, it is a conventional 32-bar song with four 8-bar sections, including a bridge ("Type A" or "AABA" song structure). (Almost) invariably performed as a ballad, it has an aria-like melody that is a challenge to many vocalists; in the key of C, the song's melody extends from G below middle C to the second D above middle C.

    The song originated in 1947 as “Music from Beyond the Moon” with music by Guy B. Wood and lyrics by Jack Lawrence. Vocalist Vic Damone recorded this version in 1948, but it was unsuccessful.

    In 1952, Robert Mellin wrote a new title and lyrics for the song, and it was republished that year as “My One and Only Love”. When Frank Sinatra recorded it in 1953 with Nelson Riddle, first released as B-side to his hit single "I've Got the World on a String" (Capitol 2505), it became known. Then popular saxophonist Charlie Ventura saw the song's "jazz potential" and recorded the first instrumental version in the very same year.[1]

    As an instrumental jazz standard, it remained predominantly a song for tenor saxophonists. Ben Webster recorded the tune with Art Tatum in autumn 1956. John Coltrane recorded his version with vocalist Johnny Hartman ten years after Ventura in 1963 (John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman). This was followed by Sonny Rollins in 1964. He re-recorded it in 1977, this time on soprano saxophone. Later interpretations came from Chico Freeman, Michael Brecker, and Joshua Redman.

    Vocal renditions of "My One and Only Love" were recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mathis, Doris Day, Mark Murphy, Chet Baker and Kurt Elling. Cassandra Wilson turned the song into an up-tempo swing number.
