Canadian singer, Gilbert Burgess Holland introduced “Without A Song” in the show “Great Day” accompanied by Fletcher Henderson’s Orchestra, in the pit of the famous Park Theatre, NYC. Gilbert is the son of Reverend John Christie Holland. One of the earliest recordings of the song was by Paul Whiteman's orchestra featuring Bing Crosby on October 9, 1929 and this reached the charts of the day. "Without a Song" was recorded in March 1946 in New York by Billy Eckstine, who later rerecorded the song live on 30 August 1960 at the Cloud Nine Lounge of the New Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas for his album No Cover, No Minimum.

"Without a Song" also was recorded twice by Perry Como: the first time on January 11, 1951 and the second time in June 1970 at a live performance at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada. The 1951 recording was issued as a 78 rpm single in the United States by RCA Victor Records and in the United Kingdom by HMV It was also included in a 1957 album, Dream Along With Me . The 1970 recording was issued on albums by RCA and its United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Japan subsidiaries, but not as a single

Various Arrangers : Men's Vocal Jazz Standards 1

A very happy version of "Sunday" inspired by Sinatra's famous recording. The bass leads in with everyone on words right off the bat. There are fun syncopations and falls in the chorus with a half-step modulation with no pivot chord (a sort of key 'slam'). Saturday Night is the Loneliest Night of the Week quoted in the tag. This is a very fun arrangmenet. "Without A Song" What more can we say? A beautiful song, a beautiful arrangement. 'Over the Raininbow' is a simple, yet beautiful harmonization of the classic tune. 'You Are Too Beautiful' is an easy, yet effective arrangement of this all time Rodgers and Hart ballad, that gives your men's section a chance to really shine!

Songlist: Sunday, Without a Song
