It’s that time again; Jazz Appreciation Month! As a music educator, my way of celebrating is to share jazz songs with a little information about the song and the performer. Enjoy!
“You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” played by Ben Webster on Verve Jazz Masters 43
Ben Webster is considered one of the three great “swing tenors” along with Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. Webster played with many of the most popular jazz orchestras throughout his career, including Benny Goodman’s, Fletcher Henderson’s, and Cab Calloway’s. He also spent a significant part of his career playing in Duke Ellington’s Orchestra.
“You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” was written by Cole Porter for the 1943 film, “Something To Shout About.”
