The CD’s title song is one of Hoagy Carmichael’s best known compositions of the 1940s. “Skylark” was another collaboration with lyricist Johnny Mercer and a song that reflected Carmichael’s jazz influences in that, according to one music scholar, it “seemed to have the improvisations built in” thus making it a joy for jazz musicians to interpret.
