2-part arrangement of the Nashville classic by Floyd Cramer
Floyd Cramer was a session pianist whose unique “slip-note” playing style came to typify the pop-oriented Nashville sound of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. His distinct style of piano can be heard on recordings by such artists as Chet Atkins, Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison, Boots Randolph, and Elvis Presley. One of the first cross-over musicians, he has been inducted into both the Country Music Hall of Fame as well as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to his work as a session musician, he also released many solo albums. He wrote and recorded “Last Date” as a solo piano instrumental in 1960, and it reached #2 on Billboard’s Pop Music chart that year.
