Review from BillieHolidaySongs.com
Session #24 New York, 6/January/1938, Teddy Wilson & His Orchestra (Brunswick)
In this session, Benny Morton’s trombone is back; he would record 20 tracks with Lady in the Columbia years.
(MT 75) My First Impression Of You ÅÅ Morton does a short opening and Billie assumes with Buck’s obbligati. It works pretty well, in spite of the less known composers.
(MT 76) When You’re Smiling ÅÅ Morton, again, introduces the theme. In a brisk tempo, reminds a jam session. Listen how, after Lady’s chorus, Teddy shines in the solo and Lester follows with lots of swing; they both come together with Buck in a grand finale. Excellent.
(MT 77) I Can’t Believe That You’re In Love With Me Å after a long intro, Billie carries well this nice song by Jimmy McHugh & Clarence Gaskill.
(MT 78) If Dreams Come True
