Song of the Day #756

Song of the Day: Them There Eyes, words and music by Maceo Pinkard, William Tracy, and Doris Tauber, is a song that has been recorded many times over since its debut in the 1930s. Today, however, I spotlight an audio clip here of a rendition sung by one of my all-time favorite jazz singers, Anita O'Day, who passed away yesterday at the age of 87.


Not only her, but Betty Comden of Comden & Green died also. The Bronx is up and the Battery's down...

Aeon, you're one ahead of me. I figured I'd give Comden her own day, today. Thanks for noting another sad passing in the world of music.
