When Hoagy Met Johnny: The Carmichael-Mercer Connection

On the heels of last week's Afterglow, a Johnny Mercer centennial tribute, and Hoagy Carmichael's birthday this past weekend, here's Moon Country: Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, an hour-long exploration of their hits, including

  • "Skylark"
  • "Lazybones"
  • "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening"

and some of their lost and little-known songs as well.

Many thanks to the Indiana University Archives of Traditional Music for their permission to use several rare demo recordings made by Mercer and Carmichael.

Happy Thanksgiving!
