Stargazing: Lullaby of Birdland - Teshima Aoi

It never hurts to pay homage to an old classic, especially if it's as timeless as 'Lullaby of Birdland'.

Composed first in 1952, many famous vocalists, including Ella Fitzgerald, took the popular song to new levels. For our list, the gentle vocals of Teshima Aoi prove that this vintage classic lives on. Once again, Kanno Yoko works her magic on this memorable jazz soundtrack.
