Working on...

Sometimes a new song is as easy as sitting down with the guitar and the lyrics.  Other times, I’ve got to search for the right chords and voicings.  And then there’s getting the vocal nuances just right.

Blossom Dearie

I’ve been working on a couple of cool tunes lately.

The first one is ‘Deed I Do, an old jazz tune from the 1920’s.  I really like the way Blossom Dearie recorded it in the mid-50’s, light and swinging.

The other song is My Baby Just Cares For Me,  a Broadway show tune also from the Roaring 20’s.  Nat did a nice version in 1949, but I’m digging the classic Nina Simone version from 1958.  Very cool.

I ‘m having fun playing with these new tunes and getting to feel comfortable with my own versions.  You’ll probably hear one or both the next time you catch my show.

If you’ve got a favorite tune that you’d like to hear get the Hank treatment, leave a comment and email me.
