Day Dream 03:33
Day Dream Why do you haunt me so? Here in a rosy glow The face of my love you show Day dream I walk along on air building a castle there for me and my love to share Don't know the time Lordy I'm lost in a daze. Sun in the sky While I moan around feeling hazy Day dream don't break my reverie until I find that she is day dreaming just like me.

about

With a nearly 10 year student-teacher relationship, Milton Suggs and Willie Pickens collaborate as two professionals to offer this piano-vocal rendition of 11 of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's beloved compositions. Willie Pickens, a legend and mainstay on the Chicago jazz scene, offers his 60+ years of musical expertise to help bring life to these compositions through his dynamic accompaniment as well as brilliant solos. It is through the wisdom of his playing and solid support that the rich baritone of Milton Suggs is able to shine through with a stunning interpretation of each tune. This album is far from flashy, for it seeks to highlight the emotional depth that can emerge from simplicity.
