Repassez-moi l'standard... "What's New ?" musique de Bob Haggart, paroles Johnny Burke (1939)
“When I met Mr. Haggart with the letter from Warner-Chappell and photos of my meeting with them, he was surprised and impressed that I had met with them and he took the letter. He told me the history of "What's New?" over lunch - fascinating stuff !” Australian jazz vocalist Catherine O'Brien (1996)
What's New ? is a 1939 popular song composed by Bob Haggart, with lyrics by Johnny Burke. It was originally an instrumental tune titled I'm Free by Haggart in 1938, when Haggart was a member of Bob Crosby And His Orchestra.
The tune was written with a trumpet solo, meant to showcase the talents of band-mate Billy Butterfield. Crosby's orchestra recorded I'm Free, the same day it was written.
