    I've been corrected on my earlier reaction to this song. If you check the shouts on my home page, you will see some serious contributions on the history of this song. It dates from around 1912 and was written in by black musicians in the aftermath of a racial incident. They clearly wrote it as a very dark, ironic (not sure if that's the right word) contribution. Quite what people like Ella and Louis were thinking when they sang it, I can only guess.Anyway, check out the shouts on my homepage, from around rhe summer of 2009,

    This is one of those tracks where all one can do is cringe. Ella was one of the greatest vocalists, and here she is singing about why she is called "Shine".
