From the Studio #13

Honeymoon Hotel

Today I needed to warm up my clarinet, so I played a couple of choruses on a tune that is not a jazz tune but a song from a 1937 Busby Berkeley musical comedy with Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler. It’s a long sequence in the film where everyone is singing, from piccolos to cab drivers, and it’s a melody that gets stuck in your head. You wake up in the night, and it’s still there. The only way to get rid of it is to play it.
