Story

 

Recording artists in every “gin joint” around the world have given their turn to this classic song. Originally known as “In Other Words” when it was written in 1954. The tune found restored life among a new generation when it was used in the opening credits of the film Wall Street in 1987. The unique spin to this recording is Wayne’s whistling solo that melds his easy vocalization with Judy’s playful piano. Notice the token wink at the Latin jazz classic, “The Peanut Vendor” in the final lick of the whistling tag.
