Crafted by the skilled hands of Ernie Burnett and finding its debut in the world of sheet music in 1912, the poignant strains of “My Melancholy Baby” carried a tale of emotion that was first unveiled to the public by the voice of William Frawley. This heartfelt composition would go on to grace the archives of jazz history, resonating through the virtuosity of legendary figures like Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Lennie Tristano, Charlie Parker, and Thelonious Monk.

The evocative performance captured here captures a moment in time, guided by the delicate touch of the ensemble.
