Great standard tune from 1930 with amazing vocal by the incredibly talented michaeljayklein. I sent him the solo guitar track and a couple of days later he sent me 2 beautiful versions of the song. Thanks Michael!!

Lyrics
Please don't talk about me when I'm gone,
Oh, honey though our friendship ceases, from now on;
And, listen, if you can't say anything real nice,
It's better not to talk at all, is my advice.

We're parting, you go your way I'll go mine,
it's best that we do;
Here's a kiss! I hope that this brings lots of luck to you.

Makes no difference how I carry on,
Remember, please don't talk about me when I'm gone.

Thank you Mark
You're one of the very best I've ever heard, and it was a great honor for me to work with you! I just marveled at your playing on this--it is brilliant. I think you've outdone me with that image up there--that is a riot!! You take care and thanks again, Michael

Please don't...
stop making sweet music like this, Mark. Your playing is superb as usual, and you were brilliant in calling in MJK. How he (or anyone) can sing this I have no idea. There is no real melody: the notes are all over the place. But it sounds terrific. Thank you.

Well
Michael's ability to improvise around a melody is amazing. There is a "stock" melody to the song but the nice thing about jazz- sing it how you feel it!

There is
a guitarist from Boston named Grey Sargent who years ago got the gig playing in Tony Bennett's band when Tony heard Grey playing in a little bar.(I'm jealous)Playing in cyberspace with Michael is pretty close!

you sure know your chords and scales
Hi Mark, it's very inspiring listening to your playing. You have a fab rhythm going all the time, even when you do the solo part.

Cool jazzy singing, very much suited for the style.

this song really only has C,E7,A7,D7 and G7- I actually try to mostly stay away from scales,I like chromatic embellishments too much! I'm a big fan of yours- thanks for the comment!

Another one of those times...
When the MacJams musical machinery brings together a couple of people who otherwise wouldn't have even known each other....

I really like both performances. I will say that with Mark's guitar sounding so full, I'd love to hear Michael's vocal mixed to 'match' it a little more, and maybe just a little more forward in the mix...

Thanks Ed
The first mix of this came back from Mark asking to bring the vocal up (which is what you hear). I did not want to bring it TOO forward as it's just me and his beautiful guitar work, but I usually sing and mix for clarity and as long as you could understand the words, I'm fine by that! Appreciate your stopping by!

What a talent ...
you two ! I think you both put your respective talents in action. Michael, I've known your talent enough for expecting another gem here, and it is. Mark's playing is just pure.

Is this a song Mark wrote ? In any case, kudos to the songwriter too, I loved it.

Glad to hear from you! Well, getting that electric keyboard is coming closer now, so hopefully next time I work with Mark we will have something of a trio. I agree, with a player like Mark, who could ask for anything more?! Take good care now and thanks for stopping by! Michael

You two are the Reese's of cool.
I'll talk about both of you as long as you roam the earth. Two great tastes in music, one tasty duo. It's a thrill to hear two top talents combine their efforts.

Nice ad lib, Michael on the "2021" knowing you (well, some of the humor at least), I'm surprised you didn't get all retro-futurismoid and go with 1959, LOL.

You beat the copyright guys!!!
I am not at all surprised by your wonderful guitar play, Mark. You are just as smooth as melted butter and have amazing control as you travel through all those jazzy chords...Nice, nice, nice. ... Yes. Michael added just the right bit melancholy-cum-jazz. What a blessing to have the right voice to top off your excellent arrangement. Kudos to you both.
