16 – Jimmy Durante – I’ll See You In My Dreams
Categories: MF1995

A gentle track that reminds me of my mother.  I knew of Jimmy Durante from my youth when you would see him on the occasional TV special.  He always looked like a crazy old man to me and I didn’t know why people enjoyed his singing.  This track haunts me though.  His breaking voice pushes forth such perfect emotion that could not express longing for lost love more perfectly by any singer from any age coupled with the most gentle strings and percussion.  And that piano…beautiful.
