My Funny Valentine

My Funny Valentine
January 2016

I struggled with this track for some time. All the versions I'd heard before didn't really grab me. I knew I should like it but couldn't get a handle on it. But when I tried it anyway I fell in love with it straight away!
"My Funny Valentine" was originally a show tune from the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical Babes in Arms in which it was introduced by former child star Mitzi Green. The song became a popular jazz standard, appearing on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists, including Chet Baker, Bill Evans, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald (my fave), Andy Williams, Shirley Bassey, Miles Davis, Etta James, Nico, Chaka Khan, Elvis Costello, Sting, and Rickie Lee Jones.
