Lee Wiley – Time On My Hands

Thanks to OverJazz Records for the You Tube

Time On My Hands is another great Lee Wiley recording from the Night in Manhattan album sessions recorded in 1951.  Joe Bushkin plays great piano accompanyment on this cut. I first heard this on my Uncle Ed’s original Columbia LP. I have this on CD. Lee Wiley was very underrated as a singer. Time On My Hands was written by Vincent Youmans, lyric by Harold Adamson and Mack Gordon in 1930. It became a jazz standard recorded by every one from Django Reinhardt to Russ Columbo.
