Recorded this version of “Dedicated To You” on the porch in Pawleys Island last week. The song was written by Sammy Cahn, Hy Zaret, Saul Chaplin... my version is inspired by the Ella Fitzgerald / Mills Brothers version that I listened to so much during the pandemic. Thank you to the cicadas for sitting in!
