Story

A tune I arranged for a student, Rhoda Lubalin. Most of the contemporary tunes in this collection were arranged for her. Larry Packer, an amazing fiddle player, nailed this in one take.

Lyrics

Although this is instrumental on the recording, I thought I'd include the lyrics here on the website.
Lyrics - Duke Ellington
Missed the Saturday dance Hear they crowded the floor Couldn't bear it without you Don't Get Around Much Anymore Though i'd visit the club Got as far as the door They'd have asked about you Don't Get Around Much Anymore Darling I guess my mind's more at ease But nevertheless Why stir up memories Been invited on dates Might have gone but what for Awf'lly diff'rent without you Don't Get Around Much Anymore. Missed the Saturday dance Hear they crowded the floor Couldn't bear it without you Don't Get Around Much Anymore Though i'd visit the club Got as far as the door They'd have asked about you Don't Get Around Much Anymore Darling I guess my mind's more at ease But nevertheless Why stir up memories Been invited on dates Might have gone but what for Awf'lly diff'rent without you Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
