"My Sweet Embraceable You":
In the comment is said : " I like the visuals "
I only see a black background. Or is it a joke ?
I guess you could call it a joke...the comments with some of these...are, well
The image you've added, which building is that ?
HA! Thanks for asking. That is an old Chicago poster from the '20s/'30s, the time period when these Gershwin tunes were first written. The days of big Al Capone.
The view is the Michigan Avenue Bridge in Chicago, looking south from the river along Michigan Avenue. (Same view as the graphic from the old TV series the "Untouchables", by the way)...that particular building is the London Guarantee Building or Stone Container Building ( Capone was supposed to have had a private club at the top, if memory serves me right):
I was trying to try to convey an image of nightlife in the big city...and oddly enough, one of the formal events I remember going to in black tie like an alcoholic penguin, was in an old private club which, itself, dated from the twenties, high above that intersection. And yes, Gershwin tunes on the piano...(I am actually much more comfortable and used to a baseball cap and blue jeans and hated having to go to these events like all
hell...but I admit, that the memories are, sort of nice, playing "grownup")...another view, Michigan Avenue Bridge, same time period, another poster, this time, looking north, on the left, the Wrigley Building, on the right, the Chicago Tribune Tower. See attachment, below...
Here's Willie Nelson...doing a famous Gershwin tune, from his "Stardust" album, which, in my personal opinion, is just one of the absolute best late night drinking, boozing, albums of all time...
Willie Nelson- Stardust -Someone To Watch Over Me
Same tune...this time by Linda Ronstadt:
