Jet (Jet, My Love)—H. Revel/B. Benjamin/G.D. Weiss, 1950 (Recorded May 4, 2011) Not the Paul McCartney song. Harry Revel wrote this, and he should be remembered for many great songs such as “There’s a Lull in My Life” and “Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?” I don’t know much else about the tune. I picked it up from Nat King Cole, but I understand Arthur Prysock cut a vocal version, and some jazz people got hold of it, like Mingus and Ahmad Jamal, all of which I have yet to hear and shall have to seek out. Cool tune, though. Reminds me of a spy movie theme.
