My Shining Hour , Augusta Jazz Funk Trio July 21, 2012

"My Shining Hour" is a song composed by Harold Arlen, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It was written for the 1943 film The Sky's the Limit, where it was introduced by Sally Sweetland - who dubbed for Joan Leslie - backed by Freddie Slack and his orchestra.[1] It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song. The song became a hit, in a version recorded by Glen Gray with Eugenie Baird as vocalist, but only slowly, taking four months to achieve recognition on Your Hit Parade having entered the charts on January 22, 1944 (the film was premiered on September 2, 1943). The song's title, and opening line: "This will be my shining hour", is believed to have been a reference to Winston Churchill's famous rallying call to British citizens during the war: "This will be our finest hour".                 by Wikipedia


という訳で戦時中に作られたスタンダード 「My Shining Hour」を三人で料理に取りかかる。リハーサルでは3拍子であったが、本番が始まってみたら6拍子で始まった。(原因は鍵盤)演奏中に三拍子または4拍子に修正を試みたのですが、修正不可能。→それで三人で基本練習。三拍子と4拍子mixのようなリズムで。。。。
まあ、これはこれで有りかも知れない。
