“Someone was unfamiliar with If You Were Mine?” Admin says.

“So here it is,” Spence says. “If You Were Mine, by Johnny Mercer and Matty Malneck, with Billie Holiday on vocals and an all-star band. The understated and brilliant pianist is Teddy Wilson, and that’s Roy Eldridge on trumpet at the end – you’ll see why that trumpet does things to Chet. The year – 1936, probably when she was at the height of her powers.”

For Molly.

Music by Matt Malneck, lyrics Johnny Mercer. Teddy Wilson on piano (and bandleader), vocal Billie Holiday, and the trumpet that takes it out is Roy Eldridge (Admin once saw him play, front table in a small club; requested More Than You Know).

Welcome High Hopes, Cocoa & Carmel.
