We’ll Be Together Again

“We’ll Be Together Again” has music composed by Carl T. Fischer, with lyrics by Frankie Laine. Fischer was Laine’s pianist and musical director when he composed the tune, and Laine was asked to write the lyrics for it. The Pied Pipers were the first to release the song, and as well as Laine, it has since been recorded by numerous artists such as Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Lou Rawls and Tony Bennett.

This is a lovely tune which I have given an instrumental, slow dance setting.

Nica’s Dream

“Nica’s Dream” was composed by jazz pianist Horace Silver in the 1950’s. “Nica” was the Kathleen Annie Pannonica de Koenigswarter (born Rothschild; 10 December 1913 – 30 November 1988) who was a British-born jazz patron and writer. She was a leading patron of bebop music. She was born to the prominent Rothschild international financial dynasty.

This is a truly beautiful tune, and my arrangement is very straight – though done in the style of sixties guitar instrumentals rather than jazz.
