Catch Of The Day (so to speak)


I had two videos come of this morning’s recording:

This first one is very exciting–I’ve never improved singing along with my piano improv before (not with any success, at least) but it takes me five minutes or so into it before I ululate–be warned!

The lyrics (I think) are:

I’ll wait ’til you’re free
If you have time for me
I’ll just wait and see
If you can find time for me.

I’ll wait ’til you’re free
Wait and hope and see
I’ll wait, if you have time for me.

These title-card backgrounds,BTW, are graphics made of Winslow Homer’s (Feb. 24th, 1836 – Sept. 29, 1910) famous oil painting “Long Branch, New Jersey” (1869).  [for more about the painting, see:  The Athenaeum]

This second recording is pretty badly jacked-up, but there are moments when I don’t make a mistake for three or four bars…

Now, please know that I have nothing but respect for Cole Porter’s incredible legacy–I only do them this violence because I can’t do any better. Apologies all ’round…

O, and of course, feel free to sing along….
