It Could Happen to You

It Could Happen to You—J. Van Heusen/J. Burke, 1944 (Recorded August 11, 2011) Here’s a song that came to us via Dorothy Lamour and Fred MacMurray in the Paramount musical, And the Angels Sing. The tune became a Big Band hit through the ’40s. I learned it from Rosemary Clooney’s version on her excellent 1986 album, Rosemary Clooney Sings the Music of Jimmy Van Heusen. On this cut I sing and play the old Epiphone banjo uke, and I take a turn whistling through the instrumental part.

This is my first new recording in quite a while. I feel a bit rusty with the process, but I hope this old Hollywood ballad is appealing enough for your enjoyment. Thanks for listening.
