Here I am, wheezing out another one! This is to my dear pal Impsie, who is not feeling good. I love you Dani, get well soon! Your Uncle Moe says this!

The song is written by Rodgers and Hart and Alan McPike provides all the rest.

You Probably Could..
Hi Michael.. I warmed up to the Brazilian arrangement this carried.. Your vocals had their usual charm to them.. Was the midget playing the sax? When that sax came in, it reminded me of Girl From Ipanema.. Lovely

MJK at his best...
This one has a very laid-back feeling to it, your vocal so relaxed and maybe not at "up" as in some of your more-recent-past posts. Somewhat the nature of the piece itself, but you keep it cool throughout, perfectly synced to this great backup band. It's like the whole thing is live and I'm sitting in the cabaret audience just soaking up the precision of it all. Always such a pleasure to hear you sing, Michael.

Nice phrasing, Michael - a little different from the usual. Elegant backing from Alan. Relaxed and relaxing. A midget? What's going on there?

Bossa Favour
Crikey, this is sophisticated! I hope you had a ciggy and a Martini in your hands as you recorded this. Whoops! There goes the reference to a short person. The sax makes up for it, however.

Can't remember hearing this one before. You mirror the cool, bossa style of Mr. McPike's backer and bring your own panache to the song, as always. Best wishes to Dani, too. Peter

First of all I'm loving the artwork. I used to love doing "Real Book Gigs." I remember back in the 90s doing this tune in a quartet with a guy on sax, a drummer, and a guy on vibes. We would play standards for functions at a local country club. I wish you had been around to front that band!!!

especially smooth
on this one. I actually like the fact that your pitch wasn't 100% perfect all the time in this one. It felt really personal and intimate as a result (and of course, your humming helped with that as well).

Another great rendition, Michael. Your singing is so smooth and charming. And that humming part tells a lot of story without words. A nice way to start a Sunday morning here in Korea. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you so very much everybody!
I'd forgotten that not long after posting this song I got rather ill with something and could not respond to your very gracious and kind comments. I'd like to rectify having been remiss in doing that and again, I'm so very obliged and happy you enjoyed this--you are all too very kind to me! Michael
