There is quite a story attached to this song. I fell in love with it when I first heard the Barbara Morrison arrangement in the yahoo jazz chatroom many years ago. Barbara Morrison hasnt hit NZ although she has played in Australia, and I adore everything I have ever heard her perform. I wanted to sing it from the moment I heard it as it had that torchy feel and I love torch smiley
A husband and wife team who lived in aussie offered to lay down a track for me. So I waited and waited and in the end I jumped a plane and went and knocked on their door. between the two of them they played guitar, bass and brushes. The entire backing was actually a mess, not because they arent amazing musicians but because I was in the early stages of using laptop to record. There was a lot of clipping and distortion and ambient clicks and pops.
Even with a good filter or two the track was really not worthy of singing to...until a friend came to stay. Now he is the kind of musician that makes you sick!! World class voice, plays any (and I mean ANY) instrument. Over a wine or two I talked him into having a listen to the song. My husband loaned him an old antique trumpet and mute, and this is the end result...an adlib on trumpet that allowed me to finally use the track.

Thanks to any who listen, it has been such a cool experience finding this place and err finding my way about...well stumbling my way about smiley

The story almost doesn't go with the amazing diddy you've posted. The arrangement and production are solid, no hint of recording difficulties at all. Gloriously performed and on the whole, a wonderfully realized song. Diggin' that horn too, btw.

Whatever changes you went through was worth effort Vicki; Almost reminds me of the song, Since I Fell For You. I especially liked your lowest notes...did you improv' the outro? A very nice listen..

Holy Cow! Amazing! The sounds, the tone, the performance and the mix, they are all outstanding. For what its worth, the clicks and pops work with the song - lends it a vintage record sound.

A superb and beautiful song, your vocals are wonderful. I can live with the pops and clicks but if you want to get rid of them I don't think it would be that hard. Your voice is very pleasant to listen to. Hope to listen to more soon!!

The cracks & pops were no big deal (I was making pop corn while listening to this anyway).

What counts is that it is a Great classic standard done as a fine collab by all including your performance of it, Vicki.

This is yummy, I love torch music very much. That muted trumpet is delicious as is your vocals. Getting a Patsy Cline/Ann-Margret mood here, swaying into the groove. Great listen on this Derby evening. Loads of kitten with a whip attitude & va-va-voom. Excellent work. Thank you for sharing with us.
