This song, Gone With The Wind, was composed by Allie Wrubel and lyrics by Herb Magidson, published in 1937. Horace Heidt’s Orchestra had the first recording and had a number one hit. This song has no commercial connection to the Margaret Mitchell novel and the movie based on her novel.
I just can’t get enough of Art Tatum. What we have here are two solo performances. The first was from 1937 and the second was from 1955 near the end of Tatum’s life. Both are extraordinary. There are hints in the 1955 version of the harmonic evolution of jazz since the 1930’s. Hints only.
