Harlem Nocturne

“Harlem Nocturne” is a jazz standard written by Earle Hagen and Dick Rogers in 1939 for the Ray Noble orchestra. It is one of the most recorded songs in history, covered by an amazing variety of artists, including Woody Herman, Johnny Otis, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Bill Haley and His Comets, the Lounge Lizards, Duke Ellington, Harry James, King Curtis, David Sanborn, Alicia Keys,  the Ventures (on their second album), the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and Danny Gatton.

My version is firmly in the early-60’s tradition, with some influence from the Ventures.
