Romance is never out of season. Nor is the music of Johnny Mercer. Here’s a charming performance of a song I wish more people would sing (Daryl Sherman has done a fine job on it) . . . with contributions from Jack Teagarden, Stirling Bose, Fulton McGrath, Dick McDonough — recorded for Decca in 1934.
Find the Mercer song here — and if you’re not humming it later today, I’ll refund your money.
The performance comes to us through the good offices of a fellow blogger — “Still A Brooklyn Kid” is his cyber-sobriquet. He has good taste in all things, and his blog is wide-ranging: urban life, baseball, boxing, early television, and of course all things swinging. Thank you, Kid!
