'Stella By Starlight'
Written by Victor Young, "Stella by Starlight" is one of the most popular standards, ranked number 10 by the website jazzstandards.com. Its May 1947 recording by Harry James and his orchestra reached the 21st place in the pop charts. Two months later, the recording by Frank Sinatra with Axel Stordahl and his orchestra also rose to the 21st position.
Charlie Parker, playing alto saxophone, made the first jazz recording of the song in January 1952, which was shortly followed by a tenor sax version by Stan Getz (December 1952), a piano version by Bud Powell, and a rendition by the big band of Stan Kenton, which featured bass trombonist George Roberts. Instrumental versions were played by Miles Davis, which first appeared on 1958 Miles, Earl Grant, Joe Pass and Dexter Gordon and vocal versions sung by Billy Eckstine, Dick Haymes, Ray Charles, Helen Reddy, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, and many others.
