Η μοναδική συνεργασία της Sarah Vaughan με τον μεγάλο τρομπετίστα Clifford Brown ήταν για το άλμπουμ “Sarah Vaughan” του 1955, που έμελλε να περάσει στην ιστορία με λάθος τίτλο.
Από εκεί διαλέγουμε το “September Song” των Kurt Weil & Maxwell Anderson.

The only time Sarah Vaughan collaborated with the great trumpet player Clifford Brown was the 1955 album “Sarah Vaughan” which was to go down in history by a false title. From this album we pick Kurt Weil & Maxwell Anderson’s “September Song”.


❝ When you meet with the young men
Early in spring
They court you in song and rhyme
They woo you with songs and a clover ring
But if you examine the goods they bring
They have little to offer but the songs they sing
And a plentiful waste of time of day
A plentiful waste of time
Oh, it’s a long, long while
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September
And the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time
For the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
And these few precious days
I’ll spend with you
These precious days
I’ll spend with you



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
