The song of the day for Saturday, January 21, 2017 is “Until I Met You.”
About This Song
“Until I Met You” was written in 1956 by Freddie Green and Donald E. Wolf. This song is also known as “Corner Pocket.” Freddie Green played rhythm guitar for the Count Basie Orchestra for fifty years. This song has also been recorded by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Sarah Vaughan, among others.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Until I Met You” in 1962. The song was recorded for the album On The Glory Road, but that album was pulled by Columbia at the last minute. Some of the songs from that album found their way onto later albums; this song was released on I Wanna Be Around in 1963. On The Glory Road was released with the 2011 Complete Collection and now, thankfully, available on iTunes.
“Until I Met You,” as well as On The Glory Road, is available from iTunes.
I know it’s Saturday, but, alas, I have no video. What I do have is Freddie Green and Count Basie … Enjoy!
