' "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.

Georgia on my mind - Quintette du Hot Club de France

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf0Qqr85CgE

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.

Can't stop myself telling this true story here about Stefan Grapelli, as he's been mentioned above a couple of times.
In the late 80's I briefly shared a flat with a guy who was the night chef at a major international hotel here in Melbourne, Australia. He came home one morning as I was going out to work, with this gem. The previous night his night waiter had taken a late order for a meal from a room and on delivering it, saw a violin on the bed.
"Oh, you play the violin, how lovely, I play the violin", the waiter had burbled as he placed the meal on the table. The hotel guest, according to the waiter, had simply smiled and said, "Oh, I play a little", or words to that effect. Absoloutely no grandstanding, no chest beating, no nothing. When the waiter got back to the kitchen he mentioned to my mate Peter the chef that the guests face was vaugely familair. They looked up the current guest/room list. Sure enough: Grapelli, in town for a concert. Peter said the waiter didn't know whether to go back and ask for an autograph or just find a hole in the ground to crawl in to and die of embarrassment there!

Cheers,
John

Hope it was OK for little boys, too. Cause I sure played it, and I'm no girl. I liked it cause it had a rock 'n' roll feel to it. My parents were OK with it, because my sister was taking piano lessons too, and I'm sure they thought the duet was cute.

Without question, "Heart and Soul" is Hoagy Carmichael's most played (but not best) song, though almost everyone who has heard it played, or even played it, has no idea about the name of the song.

A very odd song, in that sense!


Among Hoagy's other songs are these two gems: "Skylark" and "(Up a) Lazy River".

The lyricist on the latter was the uncle Sidney of Wesley Dick, who has the incredible BiaB site:

Tono (and EVERYBODY else who's reading!),

I have a movie recommendation with a tie in, my 3rd favorite all-time movie!


"The Best Years of Our Lives" from 1946 won 7 Oscars, including "Best Picture". It is universally considered one of the 100 greatest American films ever made.

Though it's an old movie, the story is incredible, and still packs a punch. Ironically, it's very timely, now, at this moment in American history. (The story is set at the close of World War II.)

Without giving anything away, one of the actors received 2 Oscars for the same performance (the only time in Academy Award history).

Be forewarned, there are no fantastic special effects or big explosions. It won't matter. You'll get sucked into the story. The people seem real, not like actors acting.

It's unlikely that you will ever think of the so-called "Greatest Generation" of Americans in the same way again, after seeing this film.

"The Best Years of Our Lives" is more than a movie; it's a work of art!


The tie in?

The local bar (joint) owner, "Butch" is played by Hoagy Carmichael.

This is your chance to see the guy that wrote "Georgia on My Mind", "Stardust", "Skylark", "The Nearness of You", "(Up a) Lazy River", and "Heart and Soul" in action!

"Butch" plays "(Up a) Lazy River" and "Among My Souvenirs", among others, on the piano!!!
