Sunday Sessions at TTE

Matthew Loveland Dennis (February 11, 1914 – June 21, 2002) was an American singer, pianist, bandleader, arranger, and writer. Dennis made six albums, which were out of print for many years. His 1953 song “Angel Eyes” (with lyricist Earl Brent) has become a frequently recorded jazz standard; less frequently recorded, but notably by Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins is “Will You Still Be Mine”. Pianist Dave Brubeck and his quartet recorded an entire album of Dennis’s compositions, released as Angel Eyes in 1965
