I've Heard That Song Before


Jun 15, 2017

Joe Hunter and his guest, Dennis Lewin, listen with you to renditions of "I Feel Pretty" by Marni Nixon, Sophie Milman, Oscar Peterson, and Sarah Vaughan. Dennis discusses this song and its place in the West Side Story soundtrack, including its use of baritone. Although not exactly a jazz standard, they discuss the influence of jazz on this piece. Then you'll enjoy this week's bonus tune by Jim Bryant & Marni Nixon, performing another piece from West Side Story. (S1 Ep 5)
