The Song of the Day for August 29, 2012 is I’m Just A Lucky So And So.
About I’m Just A Lucky So And So
Another great song by Duke Ellington, written in 1945. It’s been recorded by many jazz and popular singers, from Ella to Diana Krall and Louis Armstrong to Chuck Berry.
About This Version
This version is, like yesterday’s Solitude, is also from the 1962 Carnegie Hall concert. Mr. Bennett’s version from Bennett Sings Ellington: Hot & Cool (1999) is also worth a listen, as is the entire album.
Like many people, I associate this song with Tony Bennett. But I also believe strongly that we make our own luck possible by our acts and deeds and heart.
