Chet_Baker- But Not for Me was the first song I ever heard by Chet Baker, and I immediately rushed out to buy a CD (this was before iTunes and all that). Of course “My Funny Valentine” is Baker’s biggest hit, but this is my personal favorite, although his version of “On the Sunny Side of the Street” comes close. “But Not for Me” is one of the less-celebrated and less often performed Gershwin tunes, but it has all the marks of a great Jazz song, with smart lyrics wedded to an elegant tune.
