Bernie Cummins Orchestra — Livin’ in The Sunlight, Lovin’ in the Moonlight 1930

Thanks to 240252 for the You Tube and vintage photos.

I thought with all this super cold weather, in the country I’d play this old ode to summer. This song, Livin’ in the Sunlight, Lovin’ in the Moonlight  was written by Al Sherman and Al Lewis, and made famous by Maurice Chevalier. It was recorded in 1930. It is definitely a 1920’s Jazz orchestration by a very fine society orchestra and well before the Swing Era. For more on the song, go here.

Doesn’t a warm day at the beach look good to you?
