Stardust (or maybe Lush Life or September Song) is my favorite tune of all time. Yeah. I'm dark.

[1] Nope. Simply the first half of my last name.

[2] Agreed. There is a fairly amazing and equally obscure piano player named Dave McKenna. I'm a huge fan. He's got this version of Rockin' Chair that absolutely swings. It is killer.

Hoagy is indeed the man. Ever hear Jerry Garcia & David Grisman's take on "Rockin' Chair?" Very nice, although when it comes to Jerry playing standards, I prefer his take on Berlin's "Russian Lullaby."

[6] Nice. Thanks. I love his version of Russian Lullaby. And I like Grisman and & Garcia together. I'll find Rockin' Chair. Thanks for heads up.
