FROM THE DOWNLOAD DEN AT ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Two weeks after Johnny Mercer wrote words to Ziggy Elman's “Fralich in Spring," the new song—the hit “And The Angels Sing"—was premiered by the Benny Goodman Orchestra with singer Martha Tilton in a live broadcast on the Camel Caravan radio series. This week, on January 9, the Download Den features that recording.

The famous song is introduced by Goodman, Mercer and Tilton. After the floating vocals there is a frenetic solo by Elman.
