DOES ANYBODY KNOW THIS SONG?
- ("I wonder, I wonder, I wonder ...")
I have been reading a novel written 1930 by the Danish author Tom
Kristensen. Danish title: Hærverk (Damage). The hero is obsessed with
an American jazz tune. The song contains the words "I wonder, I
wonder, I wonder..."
That's all I know. I don't know if it's the title of the song or just
part of the lyrics. The song is played on a gramophone and it becomes
increasingly important to the main character. Has to do with his
I have been told that a jazz tune "I wonder" was recorded 1927, but by
who I don't know. If anybody happen to know who played it and where it
might be obtainable, I'd appreciate it.
The novel is interesting in a jazz context because the characters
listen to popular jazz tunes without knowing very much about it. There
are all sorts of prejudices about jazz, still the music gets to them.
