From the Studio #30

Someday Sweetheart

I don’t think that there is an end to the discussions about whether the Spike Brothers or Jelly Roll Morton are the composers of this beautiful tune. Morton and King Oliver made classic versions in the 1920’s, and we can also dream about one that was rejected by Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band in 1923.

Later, it became a vehicle for singing and improvising the way I did here.

It became rather long because I wanted to have some of the flavor of the early versions with muted cornet and also sing it. And then my saxophones looked sad and wanted to be played a little.
