Where or When

Where or When—R. Rodgers/L. Hart, 1937 (Recorded March 24, 2011) This well-known R&H song was used for their 1937 Broadway musical, Babes in Arms. It became a favorite of jazz players and pop singers in the decades after its first appearance, and as a ballad whose lyric reflects on the mysteries of human attraction, it makes its point very well. Lena Horne taught this song to me (from a recording, of course, but also in my dreams).
