Let Me Call You Sweetheart
Lyrics by Beth Slater Whitson, music by Leo Friedman
Selected one of the decade's top five love songs by ASCAP
Recording courtesy The New Liberty Jazz Band, from their CD "Two to Two"
"This tender love ballad by Friedman and Whitson was transformed from a waltz to hot jazz by the New Orleans Halfway House Orchestra in 1925. We follow in their path, adding a trombone solo by Jay that, if it conjures up a vision of Tommy Dorsey playing at the Totem Pole Ballroom, is probably due to indigestion. The band is especially proud of the cornet-saxophone duet noodle by Bobby and Bruce accompanied by Dan's and Roland's banjos."
