PINK MARTINI:    “Tea for Two” was written by Vincent Youmans in 1924 and first appeared in a Broadway show called No No Nanette.  Pink Martini recently appeared at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank. If you are not familiar with the Count Basie, they are now undergoing construction to become a major arts center. Check their programs at their web site.

DORETTA MORROW AND RICHARD KILEY   From the original Broadway cast recording of Kismet:   “Stranger in Paradise.”

When I was a kid, the lyrics to this song baffled me.  I thought the lyric was “Out of the commonplace into the air”  and “Somewhere in space I hang suspenders.”  But now I know the truth.  And not only that, but some years later I learned what the title  “a stranger in paradise”  was all about.

As for the music, it was based on the compositions of Alexander Borodin, a 19th century Russian composer.
