Adriano Fernandez and “Misty”

“Misty”was written by Erroll Garner in 1954 and was a big hit for Johnny Mathis. It was also a big hit for Ella Fitzgerald. This is a great version of “Misty” performed by Adriano Fernandez, a talented pianist and saw player. You can hear Ella Fitzgerald sing it too in the second video and notice the similarities between the two versions. The saw follows much of the phrasing of Ella’s version. Lovely!
