There’ll Be Some Changes Made

There’ll Be Some Changes Made—B. Overstreet/B. Higgins, 1921 (Recorded July 19, 2012, re-mixed August 16) Here’s an old number I learned principally from listening to Mildred Bailey’s recording, but lots of other jazz people did it through the ages. Fats Waller’s and Ethel Waters’s versions are among my faves.

I know so many people these days who are going through rough times. This one is for all my friends out there who are looking for a little change of pace.

Willow Tree—T. Waller/A. Razaf, 1928 (recorded April 19, 2012) I recorded this Fats Waller blues while in the last stages of my recovery from an upper resp infection, hence the raspy vocal. And hence the pallid, unshaven look. Bleah.

Thanks to the great Mildred Bailey for introducing me to this tune.
