Stella By Starlight - MaciekMusic.com
Stella By Starlight played by Banda de la Casa rehearsal in December 2015. We are learning this amazing tune and Hinemoa is creating some real magic on vocals here. Stella by Starlight is a jazz standard written by Victor Young and featured in The Uninvited, a 1944 film released by Paramount Pictures. Originally played in the film as an instrumental theme song without lyrics, it was turned over to Ned Washington, who wrote the lyrics for it in 1946. The title had to be incorporated into the lyrics, which resulted in its unusual placement: the phrase appears about three quarters of the way through the song, rather than at the beginning or the end.
