hi,  

i'm looking for listening suggestions on this standard.
  
as an exercise, i will compose a solo line on these changes, so i'd like to hear a few master solos first. doesn't have to be piano solos, probably just as well if it isn't.  

thanks.

rustling of the leaves used to be my lullaby
in the sunny south when i was a tot so high
and now that i have grown
and myself alone

cradle me where southern skies
can watch me with a million eyes
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

cover me with heaven's blue
and let me dream a dream or two
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

i'm breezing along, along with the breeze
i'm hearing a song, a song thru the trees
ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
that fine melody caressing the shore
familiar to me, i've heard it before
ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, that's southland

don't i feel it in my soul
and don't i know i've reached my goal
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves


*****************************


alternate opening verse as recorded by ella fitzgerald:


rustling of the leaves used to be my lullaby
days so long ago when i was a tot so high
and now that i have grown
i've found myself


*****************************


as recorded by george olsen & his orchestra:


cradle me where southern skies
can watch me with a million eyes
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves, ooh-ooh-ooh

cover me with heaven's blue
and let me dream a dream or two
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves, ooh-ooh

i'm breezing along, along with the breeze
i'm hearing a song, a song thru the trees
ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
a fine melody caressing the shore
familiar to me, i've heard it before
ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, bah-bah-bah-bah, that's southland

don't i feel it in my soul
and don't i know i've reached my goal
sing to me, sing to me, sing to me
lullaby, lullaby, lullaby of the leaves


*******************************


as recorded by keely smith:


cradle me where southern skies
can watch me with a million eyes
oh, sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

cover me with heaven's blue
and let me dream a dream or two
oh, sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

i'm breezin' along, along with the breeze
i'm hearin' a song, a song thru the trees
oooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
a fine melody caressing the shore
familiar to me, i've heard it before
oooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, that's southland

don't i feel it in my soul
and don't i know i've reached my goal
oh, sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves

so, hum me to sleep
sing me to sleep
lullaby of the leaves"
