' "Georgia on My Mind" is a song written in 1930 by Hoagy Carmichael (music) and Stuart Gorrell (lyrics). It is the official state song of the U.S. state of Georgia. Gorrell wrote the lyrics for Hoagy's sister, Georgia Carmichael [1]. However, the lyrics of the song are ambiguous enough to refer either to the state or to a woman named "Georgia". ' wikipedia

The most famous, of course, Tono, was Ray Charles' version. For all intents and purposes, it was 'his song.' Carmichael also wrote Stardust, as well as a slew of other famous songs. Of course, his most 'famous' and most played song, played by millions of young girls any time they walk by a piano would be 'Heart and Soul!' LOL

This is the first version of Georgia on my mind I ever heard. My grandfather used to play a lot of Django Reinhardt songs for my brother and I. He'd grab his violin and play the Stephan Grapelly-parts. Sometimes a friend of my grandparents would sit in and play the guitar. Fantastic.

While this video doesn't have too much of Georgia On My Mind, it shows some of it. This album is Ray Charles and The Count Basie Orchestra, two fantastic entities that never played together. The album, Ray Sings, Basie Swings is a must have album if you're a jazz lover.

And, this particular album has ties, in a family sort of way, to one of our own here in the forums.

Cute Rob, thanks.
The "Who's On First" skit is one of my favorites.
In the late 70s a couple of comics (I forget who) did a take-off with The Who, Guess Who and Yes.
It was pretty funny.

I think I've mentioned this before, but the FirstBassman moniker is indeed a play on words ... being left-handed when I played baseball as a child I was always told to play first base and the first instrument I started playing was bass.
It is the same name I use on every forum and so it is plastered all over the Internet.
Note - there is an eBay account with that same name but it is not me.
