Jazz is Back: New Year's Eve 2017

Sunday, December 31, 2017

Classic romantic holiday jazz, preformed by music greats likes Rod Stewart, David Foster, Ella Fitzgerald and Chris Botti, truly doesn't get much better than this.

"What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" was written by Frank Loesser in 1947. He also wrote the lyrics and music to the Broadway hits Guys and Dolls and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

Loesser won separate Tony Awards for lyrics and music for both shows.

"What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" has been recorded by Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Ramsey Lewis, Johnny Mathis, the Carpenters, King Curtis, Patti LaBelle, Harry Connick Jr., Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow, Diana Krall, Bette Midler, Clay Aiken, and Rod Stewart on his first Christmas CD titled Merry Christmas, Baby.


Maybe it's much too early in the game

Ooh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same

What are you doing New Year's

New Year's eve?


Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight

When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night

Welcoming in the New Year

New Year's Eve.


Maybe I'm crazy to suppose

I'd ever be the one you chose

Out of the thousand invitations

You received.


Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance

Here comes the jackpot question in advance:

What are you doing New Year's

New Year's Eve?


We hope you enjoy this Sunday Morning Stop at the Intersection of Science, Art, Music and Humanities as much as we have.

We wish you a wonderful New Year's Eve and a Healthy and Happy New Year.
