sinatra tries billy strayhorn's lush life

... and misses (only the lonely sessions, 1958)... he doesn't know how to sing it ...


desolation row/strange stripped to the bone spanish version ... flamenco feeling, soft rock masterpiece ....

sinatra & gordon jenkins 1965


dylan 2000

to ramona/dublin (september 2000)

dylan 97

bob dylan, acting strangely as some kind of rock music's rabbi, crying like an old cantor ... man, how not to love the man?

absolutely sweet marie (lovely rocking song from from blonde on blonde)

strayhorn 1965

billy strayhorn plays piano with duke ellington's band on his own composition, take the a train (1965, rare)

billy strayhorn sings lush life ...

... plays piano too (1964) ... he's not a singer but he shows how it should be sung

" invraisemblable ou pas, crois-moi, c'est la vérité -et il n'y en a pas deux ..."
