I’m Glad There Is You (first published in 1941)

January 24.2018

“I’m Glad There Is You” is a song written by Jimmy Dorsey and Paul Madeira(Paul Mertz).

The song was recorded on featuring Bob Eberly on vocal,December 22, 1941.

Please listen to my favorite piece “I’m Glad There Is You”.

 

毎週日曜日の夜に聞いているジャズ番組「World Jazz Warehouse(FMCOCOLO765)」からブログのテーマを考えました。

今回の放送(1/21)ではFranco Ambrosetti(フランコ・アンブロゼッティ)がEnjaレーベルに昨年録音した「CHEERS」が紹介されました。

このアルバムから私の大好きな「I’m Glad There Is You」が選曲されました。

この曲はご存知の通りJimmy DorseyとPaul Mertzの作品で1941年にBob Eberlyの歌唱でヒットしました。

私はFranco Ambrosettiについては全くの門外漢ですので、彼の経歴等を調べましたら1941年生まれと知りました。

「偶然の一致でしょうか、それともFranco Ambrosetti自身が生まれた1941年にヒットしたバラードを選曲したのでしょうか?」

詳しい方からの情報提供をお待ちします。

そんな訳で私のお気に入りの「I’m Glad There Is You」をブログに添付しました。

Today I want to post about Jane Monheit.

She was growing up on Long Island in New York.

At 17 age, she studied clarinet and theory and started vocal training at the Manhattan School of Music.

She won the second prize in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition.

Recently, I heard ’Rio De Maio’ with Ivan Lins.

He talked about meeting with her.

”When I had appeared in the New York Blue Note,almost every day, there was a woman who came to listen for my performance.

At my last stage, I thought “she was really enthusiastic fan. That lady was Jane .”

Please refer to their comments for Blue Note Tokyo performance.

Lorenz Hart(2) 〜’It Never Entered My Mind’

May 03.2016

“It Never Entered My Mind” is a show tune from musical Higher and Higher (1940).

Once I laughed when I heard you saying
that I’d be playing solitaire,
uneasy in my easy chair.
It never entered my mind.

Once you told me I was mistaken,
that I’d awaken with the sun
and order orange juice for one.
It never entered my mind.

You have what I lack myself
and now I even have to scratch my back myself.

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I’d sing the maiden’s prayer again
and wish that you were there again
to get into my hair again.
It never entered my mind.

Miles Davis (tp), John Coltrane (ts), Red Garland (p), Paul Chambers (b), Philly Joe Jones (d)
