1. East of the Sun
(Brooks Bowman, 1934)
I knew this tune but never thought of singing
it until a friend said it was her favorite.
I really got it one winter afternoon hanging
out on a hotel bed with my best girl, listening
to Tony Bennetts version.
2. Days of Wine and Roses
(Henry Mancini/Johnny Mercer, 1962)
Mercers mysterious, sad lyric has
always fascinated me. Dave came up with
a groove that somehow embodies it. And Noel
plays brilliantly on this track.
