Jimmy Rowles: Lullaby of the Leaves

In addition to playing in the bands of a who’s who of jazz, pianist Jimmy Rowles served as accompanist for such singers as Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, June Christy, Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee, and Mel Tormé. Rowles was known for great sensitivity and harmonic sophistication as well as for a comfortable sense of swing. His personalized harmonization of the standard “Lullaby Of The Leaves,” accompanied by bass alone, is a treat for the ears.
