My pal Tom Wiggins said that one of his top five songs hated is:
5. My Funny Valentine no matter who the chick singer is.
To which I ask:
OK, but have you heard Chet Baker Sing it? Or Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker
play it? Gorgeous song, gorgeous harmonies to explore for those so inclined.
Me, I like them all, as long as they swing, or if a ballad, as long as there
are varied harmonic avenues to explore. If they don't swing, or are boring
like Eh La Ba, I shut my ears.
