A beautiful song, beautifully sung by the great and aristocratic Ruth Olay, a true legend of jazz.
Born in San Francisco, jazz singer Ruth Olay's family moved to Los Angeles when she was eighteen months old. Her father was a rabbi, her mother a singer. While still a teenager in the 1940's she sang with Benny Carter's great band. A major fixture of the Hollywood nightclub scene in the mid-1950's, in the latter part of that decade Olay parlayed her regional popularity into national and international recognition on television, recordings and in major nightclubs throughout the US and abroad. Today Ruth Olay is retired from singing and in recent years has turned her attention more in the direction of social activism on various commissions for aging, the homeless, etc.
