The Nearness Of You: Larry McKenna

New to me, but wow, what a saxophonist!

Larry McKenna – tenor saxophone
Tony Miceli – vibraphone
Matthew Parrish – bass
Dan Monaghan – drums

Its not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
Its just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
Its just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you.

  1. Love this fine rendition of a great old (1940) standard. “Wow, what a saxophonist” but also, what a vibraphonist (Tony Miceli)! He reminds me of my all-time favorite on that instrument, Red Norvo.
