The song of the day for Friday, July 29, 2016 is “Wait Til You See Her.”
About This Song
“Wait Till You See Her” was written by Rodgers and Hart for the 1942 Broadway musical By Jupiter, which starred Ray Bolger. Even though the song was well-recieved in previews, it was cut prior to opening in order to tighten up the show. Songs cut from productions are often lost, but Mabel Mercer loved the song and sang it regularly in her act. Other great recordings include those by Ella Fitzgerald and Blossom Dearie.

Tony Bennett recorded “Wait Til You See Her” in 1973 and released it in 1976 on Tony Bennett Sings 10 Rodgers & Hart Songs.
“Wait Til You See Her,” as well as The Complete Improv Recordings, is available from iTunes.
