JESSICA MOLASKEY. From her album Pentimento. This song was written in 1921 for an African-American review with music by Eubie Blake called  Shuffle Along.  Jessica is great; but I love the clarinet solo of Ken Peplowski.

A review of this song from All About Jazz.com, by Craig Hurst,  said:

Molaskey performs the Eubie Blake/Noble Sissle classic “I’m Just Wild About Harry,” as a ballad rather than in its more familiar up-tempo version. As a ballad, a new tenderness of the lyric and the heartfelt emotion of this song come through like the beauty of aged wood grain hidden under stripped away old varnish.
