Al Kooper on "When Green Eyes Turn Blue"

The Morton Report: Al Kooper: 28th October, 2011

Who knew when I was enjoying “Tiny Steps,” “Alison,” and “So Like Candy” that THAT guy could sing like THIS? I guess that amazing Bacharach album was a real tipoff, but there’s no Burt to count on here. Elvis wrote the song, the arrangements and co-produced this inclusion from the 2003 "North" album. Kevin Killen was his producing partner and engineered and mixed this brilliantly. Someday, I wanna hear him duet with Tony Bennett on this song. Meanwhile I’m content hearing him Krall-ing around on this version. And a sumptuous way to calm down this week's shenanigans as well. Will I see you in November? Happy Halloween!"
