Sheet music for “Night and Day”

Fred Astaire on “Night and Day”.

It had a long range, very low and kind of very high, and it was long, as they all said, and I was trying to figure out what kind of dance could be arranged for it. I asked him to play it again and again, and after four or five times I began to get with it…It was a known fact that it made the show. “Gay Divorce” had an awfully rough trip when it first opened on the road and later in New York. It was known after it caught on as “The Night and Day Show”.
