When The World Was Young by Philippe-Gérard and Johnny Mercer

We feature Madison Rast playing the melody on this one, as you’ll hear. I wasn’t too familiar with this song, but Madison brought it in for the session, and I think it worked really well in combination with all the other songs we played. Sometimes just playing the melody feels like enough.

Also, this is the last song from this particular session with Madison and Anwar. But we have quite a few alternate versions of these tunes that I’m planning to share, as well. 

More soon, and as always thanks for listening.

John Ellis – tenor saxophone
