*I'm crediting London's version here and using her version of the lyrics, but there were at least three other recordings that I listened to in developing this arragement, and all had something to offer. Nat King Cole's trio recorded it in 1963, as did the Benny Goodman Quartet in their 1963 reunion, and Dinah Washington recorded it in 1956.
