They  were ³Stardust² and ³Georgia on My Mind,² a pair of Hoagy  Carmichael
standards that Mr. Nelson long ago personalized. He sang them  both with a
forthright intimacy, as if telling a cherished bedtime story.  And the band
was right there with him, emphasizing how the blues are as  much a feeling as
a form.

I fell in love with Nelson's "Stardust" while  attending USCLB in the last 
70's. We had a group and we all loved the album. I  recently found it on E-bay, 
re-mastered and on CD of course and love it still.  Since then, Nelson has 
been one of my favorite current  musicians.
