Wayback Garage #19: Lullaby of the Leaves

July 31, 2016 at 6:23 pm Leave a comment

Listening to this arrangement, you would never know what a beautiful tune this is, or how many different jazz artist made soothing recordings of the tune. Written by by composer Bernice Petkere and lyricist Joe Young, it was featured in a  1932 Broadway revue. Ella Fitzgerald’s version is probably the best known jazz version.

Somehow, the Ventures turned it into a raucous surf rock tune in the style of “Walk Don’t Run”.  That’s what my arrangement is based on. I do not recommend trying to sleep with it playing.
