The song of the day for Saturday, February 9, 2019, is “Fascinating Rhythm.”
About This Song
Written in 1924 for the Broadway musical Lady Be Good by George and Ira Gershwin, “Fascinating Rhythm” was introduced by Cliff Edwards and Fred and Adele Astaire. The Astaires also recorded the song in 1926 with Gershwin on piano. “Fascinating Rhythm” was and still is, a great jazz number. For that reason, it has never been out of favor with jazz artists, both vocal and instrumental.
