I've Heard That Song Before


Jul 13, 2017

Joe Hunter and his guest, jazz pianist Les Roberts, listen with you to 4 renditions of “Lush Life” by Nat King Cole, John Coltrane, Billy Strayhorn, & Queen Latifah. Joe and Les discuss the relative obscurity of this song, they tell stories behind the different performers of this song, and they reveal their honest feelings about each each version of it. You’ll enjoy this week's bonus tune too, which was also written by Billy Strayhorn, called “I’m Checkin’ Out, Goombye,” performed by Rosemary Clooney with Duke Ellington and his orchestra.
