After Midnight New Years Day Once Again

This is an outtake from the movie Annie Hall, with Diane Keaton singing the Carmen Lombardo song which we heard before  with the Lombardo band.  Taking a page from Louis Armstrong’s book, I played this for several of my friends and asked  them to guess who originally wrote and recorded that song.  I got the same reaction as Louis Armstrong did.  Guy Lombardo! You’ve got to be kidding!  Keaton was accompanied by the great Dick Hyman on piano. Thanks to wingnanarainy.

Dancing in the Dark…The way a night out on New Years Eve used to be.  We’ve played this Art Tatum solo one before. Thanks again to bluesinorbit.

Here’s another  Art Tatum Solo we’ve played before:  I Didn’t Know What Time It Was. This and Dancing In The Dark are  my all time Tatum favorites.  Thanks again to bluesinorbit.

I’m ending with Bria Skonberg and Jeff Barnhart Je suis seul ce soir at the Jeff and Joel Jazz House Party in 2012.  This is a reprise of last New Year’s Eve Music.  I feel great thinking about all the wonderful old music sometimes made new and available out there.  I wish you a Happy New Year.  Thanks again to CineDevine.
