A couple of clips from YouTube
I thought about you This is second video from that evening in 2004. I thought about you was written by Jimmy van Heusen, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The story that Mercer told is that van Heusen gave the music to him in New York shortly before he was going to catch a train to Chicago. Not long after leaving New York, Mercer started to draft the lyrics, which accounts for the opening words of the song: “I took a trip on a train”. The song became a jazz standard in the 1950s and was recorded by artists like Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis
Here’s that rainy day Another tune from the pen of the great American songwriter Jimmy van Heusen. This version is played by the Mick Hamer trio, with Andy Woon on cornet and Gerry Higgins on double bass. The trio were recorded live at one of the weekly jazz sessions at the Clocktower cafe in Croydon on 18 August 2016. Thanks to Paul Smart for the video.
Jimmy van Heusen was born Edward Chester Babcock, but understandably he thought his surname would hinder his musical career so he took the name van Heusen from a brand of shirts.
