Tunes Performed by Alex Hassan Tonight

For D.G., regarding Alex Hassan’s performance at the Millenium Stage tonight (unfortunately, requires RealPlayer to view the video; link goes to the Millenium Stage’s video recording of the event).

The first piano roll tune that Alex played was Your Feet’s Too Big.

Your Feet’s Too Big, Fats Waller (listen for the humorous lyrics)

Your Feet’s Too Big, Sesame Street

And the opening tune for the J. Fred Coots medley was For All We Know (it later reappeared in the medley).

For All We Know, sung by Nat King Cole

This is the version that I am familiar with; the golden-voiced Nat King Cole is accompanied by a string arrangement by Gordon Jenkins.
