On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)

Feb 9, 2014

Written for Broadway by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner, On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever) is featured this week on "Stories of Standards." The great American songbook jazz interpretations of the song continues to be explored on First Take with Lando and Chavis! The musical with music by Lane and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner based loosely on Berkeley Square (written in 1929 by John L. Balderson) concerns a woman who has ESP and has been reincarnated. 

Some of the song lyrics:

On a clear day, rise and look around you
And you'll see who just prove you are
On a clear day, how it will astound you
That a glow of your being, outshines every star

Bill Evans version of  'On a Clear Day' will be part of this week's lineup of "Stories on Standards!"
