Lush Life

I heard this song as a teenager and liked it. However, when I hear it now 15 years later, I go through a whole range of emotions. The song seems simple enoough, but is actually quite complex. It was written in 1915 by Billy Strayhorn, a 16 year old boy. I'm amazed that he could feel this song so deeply - both musically and emotionally at such a young age.

Hope you enjoy.

Here's Natalie...
