This song was written by singer Billie Holiday, and pianist/composer Mal Waldron and published by E.B. Marks. It is one of seven songs written by or co-written by Billie Holiday that she never recorded.
Mal Waldron began working as pianist for Billie Holiday in mid 1953. Billie had intended to record the song a number of times but "always forget the damned sheet music." However, Mal Waldron recorded the song on his 1959 album, "Left Alone" and near the end of the LP discusses the songs origin.
