"A Sunday Kind Of Love"

OK, more 40's on a lazy Sunday (hint, hint!) morning: This Bell/Leonard/Rhodes/Prima '46 jazz and pop standard was 1st recorded on the same year by Claude Thornhill and His Orchestra. Masterfully covered by, among others, Ella Fitzgerald, The Del Vikings, Etta James (saw her doing it live in Houston years ago) and Lenny Welch. My fave happens to be Kenny Rankin's '75 rendition - a masterpiece!

Yesterday's answer: "Watching the Wheels" by John Lennon, who would have been 70 today. Sometimes I still can't believe he's dead! My fave solo Lennon tune.
