Description

An audio recording of "It's a Wonderful World," composed by Jan Savitt (1907-1948), Harold Adamson (1906-1980), and "Johnny Guitar" Watson (1935-1996), and performed by Terry Myers live on-air on WUCF-FM on August 14, 2006. Myers is a reed player from Iowa who developed a successful career in Nashville, Tennessee, and New York before moving to Central Florida, where he became a band leader at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park and the band leader at Rosie O'Grady's Good Time Jazz Emporium at Church Street Station in Orlando. Myers has played at jazz festivals across the United States, Europe, and Asia, and is currently the director of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. Although most songwriters were under contract to publishers during the big band era, in rare cases, a bandleader would write his/her own song. Savitt, along with Adamson and Watson, composed "It's a Wonderful World," and recorded it on Savitt's 1938-1941 recording collection, It's Time to Jump and Shout.
