Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most

March 03.2016


This piece is not a song made famous adopted by musical.

George Shearing was spread this song in NY jazz scene.

When he appeared on jazz club in St.Louis, he liked this song and took home-recording to tape completely

He let this song to his fellow, Jackie & Roy and Bob Dorough were in addition to their repertoire.

Please hear from Jackie & Roy.

 

Please listen to two female singer.

 I think this is the best in the male singer.

 

Listening in the guitar solo is feel good for me.

Of course the last performer is Ella Fitzgerald.
