    We covered But Not for Me in April 2015, so our standard for Nov 2019 will be On the Sunny Side of the Street (Jimmy McHugh & Dorothy Fields, 1930).

    Background:
    Jazz Standards Songs and Instrumentals (On the Sunny Side of the Street)

    It's like the Bastille. As long as the food keeps disappearing they're still alive. As long as the next standard's up M-ster's probably all right!

    (I hope he is all right)

    First place I heard this tune was on the record "Sonny Side Up." Love Diz's alternate lyrics.

    I'll be sure to participate this month, this is one of the all time classics.

    Quite interesting, Mr. B, when they sing the lyrics, they pronounce 'can't' the Brit way as 'cahn't'. I was quite surprised by that. And there's all those Brit singers going 'can't' because they wanna sound 'merican :-)

    (I do that too because singing in posh Brit sounds absurd!)

    Me and my faithful friend hanging out on the sunny side of the yard in September. The weather in New Hampshire is a bit chilly now to be picking outside.
