This is indisputably the best rendition of this song. Better than Armstrong or Stewart. Her voice is sweet and sensitive. The way she rolls her eyes at 1:13
is understated but provocative. The syncopation (shifting the stress) shows mature, professional mastery of the craft.
Her voice became more brash in later years, as you can judge from other clips on YouTube.
This clip keeps appearing and disappearing from You Tube. Really? You think this "copyright violation" is going to eat into the enormous profits from sales of the 1951 movie "The Strip"? I would never have heard of the movie had it not been for Kay Brown. If anything, this would motivate me to buy a copy, if it were available.
