The Nearness of You
I’m in the mood for old jazz ballads today, and one of my all time faves is ‘The Nearness of You’, written by Hoagy Charmichael & Ned Washington, back in 1938. It’s been played by many artists, but one of my favorite versions is by Norah Jones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx_NQMLMbYE
Fun Fact: Hoagy Carmichael is the best musician ever named after a sandwich. Totally beats out the competition, like BLT Sanders, Grilled Cheese Garrison, and the rapper Monte Cristo.
