Lucky's one of my favorites. I love his way with a melody. Did Dodo write this? Because Lucky wrote many good tunes.

It's a Hawkins/Webster inspired bit of balladry - he's very young here, and perhaps paying a bit of dues.

I'd call it classic rather than dated, unless a lush tone and an air of romanticism are things to be embarrassed about.

I do agree he was more into his own bag later on.

Marmarosa gets the liner note credit for writing it.

This entire CD is from the 1944-1947 part of his career.

Nice, though dated. IMHO he really shone on his later, more individual stuff, starting probably in the 50s on stuff like Tricotism and on into the 1960s with Lucky Strikes and much more.
Lucky Strikes kicks some serious @ss.
