Mourning, I still owe you an answer to your question about my favs singing the American Songbook.
That's right. Peggy lee ( mack the knife, Why don't you do right)
are sure in it right?
but i am waiting.....
Okay. Without further adieu . . . .here's my list in no particular order:
Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Shore, Lena Horne, Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone, Nat Cole, Judy Garland, Billy Ecstein, Mel Torme, Bobby Short, Rosie Clooney, Jo Stafford, Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby (I don't generally like his voice but he does the most ravishing Moonlight Becomes You
without all the ideosynchracies that he was famous for and that more than makes up for the silliness of his warble elsewhere), Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Keely Smith, Michael Feinstein, Harry Connick, Jr., Johnny Mathis, sometimes even Patty Page and Patsy Cline, The Ink Spots, Chirs Connor, Sarah Vaughn, Eartha Kitt, The Mills Brothers, The Ames Brothers, Jessica Mulaskey, Blossom Dearie, Nancy LaMott, Tierney Sutton, John Pizzarelli,
Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Woodie Herman, Benny Goodman, Art Tatum, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Fats Waller (as pianist), just about any boogie woogie artist or stride pianist.
