Bye Bye Blues
Last updated: 29.02.20
Bye Bye Blues (1925) is a popular and jazz standard composer by Fred Hamm with lyrics by Dave Bennett, Bert Lown, and Chauncey Gray who were members of his band, The Benson Orchestra.
Since its composition it has been covered by numerous artists great and small - a rendition by Les Paul and Mary Ford was extremely popular.
I had the good fortune as a member of Das Trio to get to sing the bass part of an SAB arrangement by Kurt Maas found in Chor aktuell junior and published by Gustav Bosse Verlag..
One idle thought. How long did it takes for the three lyricist to summon up the whole 16 individual words used in the song?
