This 1931 song by Finnish-American composer Einar Swan is very sultry and beautiful with gorgeous chords. He was a very talented musician who played many instruments but primarily saxophone. He was also an excellent arranger. But, this song is his piece de resistance and was covered by all the great vocalists. And, it's difficult to sing; at least, for me it is.  But, I had to do it because it is so beautiful. Frank Sinatra included it among his "Songs of the Century." Paul Popa did a very stirring guitar solo.
