Iowa, 1979

Advertisement

Bill Evans performs "Someday My Prince Will Come" at a concert in Iowa on January 30th, 1979.

The waltz first appeared in the 1937 Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

It was first performed as a jazz piece by a band of prisoners at the Theresienstadt concentration camp in World War II. Theresienstadt unlike any other concentration camp in Nazi Germany afforded prisoners a modest degree of freedom in order to deceive humanitarians and Westerners concerned about the treatment of prisoners in camps. As a result, prisoners who could afford instruments were allowed to congregate and form bands. One such group was the Ghetto Swingers, a band of Czech Jews who conceived "Someday My Prince Will Come" as a jazz song and transformed it into a standard.

Personnel:

Bill Evans - piano
Marc Johnson - bass
Joe La Barbera - drums
