Links to Mercer Performances

Madeline Peyroux singing Summer Wind.

Pretty good contemporary version of Mercer and Arlen’s “Blues in the Night” by Katie Melua.

Sinatra performing One for My Baby.  As Sinatra aged, his performance of many songs suffered.  But his performance of this Mercer classic only improved!

Satchmo doing “Moon River.”

Don Henley trying his hand at Mercer’s “Come Rain or Come Shine.

Lady Ella sings “Acc-Cent-Chu-Ate the Positive“.

Marilyn Monroe with her version of “That Old Black Magic.”  Her singing is in character, not a reflection of her actual abilities.
