Songs I wish Billie had sung #1

Skylark by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, one of my favorite standards. A few renditions–from the top down: Cleo Laine (love the flute’s birdsong), Aretha Franklin, Dianne Reeves. Not on youtube but definitely worth a listen–Cassandra Wilson; and Kate Ceberano accompanied by trumpeter Mark Isham. Well, we can wish. . .
