It seems fitting to start this generation of Song Of The Month with September Song, since it's September. Like a lot of folks, I first knew about this tune from Nat King Cole. I enjoy calling it at gigs in September, but it's a really fun tune to solo over any time of the year, and I love the haunting melody of the head. My favorite Django version is on the Blue Star cd "The Great Artistry Of Django Reinhardt" recorded in Paris in 1953. His singing sustain on the electric guitar suits the tune beautifully and I think it works well in the quartet format of guitar, bass, piano & drums.
