Star Dust – Música

“Stardust” is a popular song composed in 1927 by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics added by Mitchell Parish in 1929. Carmichael recorded the song, originally titled “Star Dust”, at the Gennett studio in Richmond, Indiana. The “song about a song about love”, played in an idiosyncratic melody in medium tempo, became an American standard and is one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century with over 1,500 recordings. In 2004, Carmichael’s 1927 recording of the song was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

Isham Jones’s recording became the first of many hit versions. Bing Crosby recorded a version on August 19, 1931 with studio orchestra directed by Victor Young, and by the following year, over two dozen bands had recorded “Stardust.” It was then covered by almost every prominent band of that era, including Artie Shaw in 1941 with solos by Billy Butterfield (trumpet) and Jack Jenney (trombone).
