This version of the too-seldom-heard Jimmy Van Heusen/Johnny Mercer ballad was recorded in the last year of Jeanne Lee's life.
She was born in New York City in 1939 and graduated from Bard College in 1961 and started her professional career shortly thereafter.
She's best known for her collaboration with cutting edge musicians like Ran Blake, Carla Bley, Archie Shepp, Marion Brown and Anthony Braxton, but as this performance shows, she knew her way around traditional forms too.
