That Old Feeling

1 02 2011

That Old Feeling—L. Brown/S. Fain, 1937 (Recorded Feb. 1, 2011) Here’s the hugely popular Sammy Fain-Lew Brown hit that just about every big-time vocalist of the middle 20th Century recorded (or wanted to record). It’s an essential ballad from the time period when ballads made superstars of pop singers, from Sinatra on down. Sammy Fain wrote a bunch of great old love songs, such as “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing,” and “I Can Dream, Can’t I.” He also penned the music to Disney’s Alice In Wonderland, whose theme song got picked up and turned into a jazz standard by the likes of Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson.

I love it! Some fine harmonies there, and more than a lot of fun. Was it from 2010? I don’t remember it from ’09.

Yeah, from last year. I was just passing and had to pull out the camera. We need to get you over again.

Ahhh, I’d love to go again. Not looking too likely to happen this year, but you never know….

Ahh – thanks for pointing me to this tune, Patsy. This is just a marvelous performance, and your accompaniment is perfect. OK, don’t mean to go all sycophantic on you, but it brought a tear to my eye. 🙂

Ahh, thanks, man. It’s a mutual admiration society. I love your style. We have to get together some time. Maybe at one of Ted & Jason’s next Cabaret shows…they start those back up in the fall, I think.

Stay in touch.
