Over The Rainbow

Ben Webster

 

The Marquee Club, London, 1964

Written by Harold Arlen for the 1939 film that everybody knows about, “The Wizard of Oz,” “Over the Rainbow” has since become one of the most covered songs of all time. Naturally it’s become closely associated with its original singer Judy Garland.

“Jazz 625” was a mid-’60s BBC program whose episodes have been frequently re-run over the years by the network.
