About This Song
Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart wrote “Have You Met Miss Jones?” in 1937 for the musical revue I’d Rather Be Right. It’s one of their sweetest and most charming love songs, as the young man who is introduced to Miss Jones and falls in love immediately. In addition to Bennett’s recording, other significant recordings include those by Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.
