“All the Things You Are.”   Live with Ken Peplowski  (clarinet) and Friends, honoring Benny Goodman.  Jerome Kern wrote the music, and the words are by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Jazz musicians love this classic.  Charlie Parker said that this song had his favorite lyrics. He used to call it “YATAG” which is an acronym for the lines “you are the angel glow” in the “B” part of the tune.

“You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights the star,
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Someday my happy arms will hold you,
And someday I’ll know that moment divine
When all the things you are, are mine.”

It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?  And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there. However, choose May.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris..
“Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”  Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  So many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie made the most famous version.
