Accompanied by Gershwin's "The man I love" in a jazzy version. Nice.



Shame the music fizzles out.

Never heard of it before now. Had to look it up ......

http://www.last.fm/music/George+Gershwin/_/The+Man+I+Love


Then, reading the comments, had to check out Ella Fitzgerald's version (nice)




and Billie Holiday's rendition (nicer)




Diana Ross (a real treat - definitely my favourite)
Love the horn piece in the middle




and this last clip (Lena Horne) would fit very nicely into the original film above ...
Would be nice to see a touch of colour (or even color - seeing as it's New York) added to this old clip

KK, here's another classic version.

And I love the restraint and refinement of this Grainger transcription.
