Song list

After you've gone
All of me
Anything goes
As time goes by
At last
Autumn leaves
Black Orpheus
Bye bye blackbird
C'est si bon
Cheek to cheek
Come away with me
'Deed I do
Don't get around much anymore
Don't know why I didn't come
Easy to love
Everybody wants to be a cat
Fly me to the moon
Georgia on my mind
Girl from Ipanema
I can't give you anything but love
If I were a bell
I'll close my eyes
I'm beginning to see the light
In the wee small hours of the morning
It don't mean a thing
Just the way you look tonight
La vie en rose
Lady be good
Love for sale
Lullaby of birdland
Moon river
Mr Bojangles
My funny valentine
My heart belongs to daddy
Nature boy
Night and day
Pennies from heaven
'Round midnight
Route 66
Slow boat to China
Somewhere over the rainbow
St James infirmary blues
Stormy Monday
Sunny side of the street
The days of wine and roses
The song is you
There will never be another you
What a difference a day made

Maltby & Minton played at my annual January party. They were excellent! Really set the tone for a great evening. Great music. Good people.
