I thought it was Eartha Kitt!!!
Really enjoying this- I was humming this song today while I was working outside. Amazing that you are doing this!
Totally fascinating show.
It never struck me, till about three songs in tonight, that the Faulkner story "That Evening Sun" must be referencing this lyric...
This is GREAT!!!!

I concur, wonderful program. I also dig that the possibility of more installations of the same nature is indicated by "#1"!
Very nice! Appreciate how you put this set together.
from wikipedia -- you played both versions, i think --
The version with Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong on cornet was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1993. The 1929 version by Louis Armstrong & His Orchestra (with Henry "Red" Allen) was inducted there in 2008.
Thanks for the great comments, everybody!
Who knew "The St. Louis Blues" was a tango?
