An Anniversary

Shortly after my parents' 57th wedding anniversary last year my mother passed away following a long illness. Today would have been Mom and Dad's 58th anniversary but instead it has become an uncomfortable emptiness in the calendar. Here is an instrumental version of my parents' song, the Gershwins' "I've Got a Crush on You." This recording by Thad Jones dates from 1956, the year of their marriage.

"I've Got a Crush on You" (1928)
Performed by Thad Jones (1956)
from "The Magnificent Thad Jones"
George Gershwin, Music
Ira Gershwin, Lyrics
