Learning the lyrics this morning to this Great Hoagy Carmichael composition. I left it open for soloing, but I may have sped up a little. Don't put a click on it.

Great chords, nice'n easy vocal, and a great feel to the whole thing, David. Thanks for posting this. I'm not familiar with that song, so now I've got another one to learn!

Hoagy Carmichael's 'New Orleans's was amongst the earliest tunes learned, in my first ever jazz band, as eager up-and-coming young banjo lion.
