Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

I hear music, mighty fine music
The murmur of a morning breeze up there
The rattle of the milkman on the stair

Sure that's music, mighty fine music
The singing of a sparrow in the sky
The perking of the coffee right nearby

That's my favorite melody
You, my angel, phoning me

I hear music, mighty fine music
And anytime I think my world is wrong
I get me out of bed and sing this song

That's my favorite melody
You, my angel, phoning me

I hear music, mighty fine music
And anytime I think my world is wrong
I get me out of bed and sing this crazy song
