Bernice Claire and Alexander Gray in Spring Is Here

‘Spring Is Here’ was the title of a 1929 Broadway show (filmed the following year).

Some of the great jazz vocalists recorded ‘Spring Is Here’.
Ella Fitzgerald, Monica Zetterlund, Tony Bennett, and Chris Connor

Also the famous pianists Bill Evans and Kenny Drew recorded this song.

Fortunately this song was played at about twice or three times faster than the original ballad speed.

As a result, the classic tune became a completely new, hard bop tune.

John Coltrane recorded it in July 1958.

In addition contemporary artists such as Michael Brecker,Charlie Haden and Bobby Hutcherson played this piece.
