Shiny Stockings (Live) by Johnny Smith

““Shiny Stockings” has two sets of lyrics, by both Ella Fitzgerald and Jon Hendricks. Fitgerald recorded the tune with her lyrics in July of 1963 on Ella and Basie: On the Sunny Side of the Street. Hendricks recorded his lyrics in January 1963 on Recorded in Person at the Trident. Earlier recordings may exist. The ASCAP ACE database lists Foster as the writer for the instrumental version and both Foster and Fitzgerald for the vocal version. Sarah Vaughan recorded Fitzgerald’s lyrics in 1964 on Viva Vaughan. #jazz
