Orange Colored Sky

The Microsoft Jazz Band performed this in July. Another of my favs, again by Shaz Adams, “Orange Colored Sky” is a popular song, written by Milton DeLugg and Willie Stein and published in 1950.

As sung by Shaz at Big Daddy’s in 2010

The best-known version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole (with Stan Kenton’s orchestra), but a number of other singers have recorded it, including Cole’s daughter, Natalie. The Microsoft Jazz Band plays this Roger Holmes arrangement at Big Daddy’s in Woodinville.
