Rockin' Chair

Another cover of an old jazz standard written by Hoagy Carmichael (Stardust, Georgia on my Mind) in 1929 and was popularized by Mildred Bailey as well as Louis Armstrong who utilizes a "call and response" to create a dialogue between an aged father and his son. I learned the song from a recent Eric Clapton album and recorded it with my trusty ol' Taylor 312 on the second take.
