"How High The Moon"

OK, more 40's: This '40 Hamilton/Lewis jazz standard premiered on Broadway on "Two For The Show". 1st recorded by Benny Goodman. Les Paul/Mary Ford's version spent 25 wks. on Billboard and 9 wks. at #1. Became Ella Fitzgerald's "signature" tune in '47. 1st song The Beatles ever played at The Cavern. Jeff Beck performed a note-by-note rendition during the 2010 Grammys as a tribute to Les Paul.

Yesterday's answer: "What A Diff'rence A Day Made" or "Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado".
