Senior Adam Sands is currently listening to “Look for the Silver Lining” by Chet Baker.

“I like this song because it is very mellow and a good jazz song,” Sands said. 

Chet Baker was a jazz singer born in 1929 and is famous for his fragile tone in his singing and playing.  He is a member of the Jazz Hall of Fame and is known for his vocals and for his trumpet skills. 

“Look for the Silver Lining” is a song with a strong piano backtrack and multiple featured singers. This song was written in 1919 for a failed musical “Zip, Goes a Million” and was later  featured  in the musical “Sally” in 1920. 

If you’re looking for an older, more classic sound or enjoy music with a coffee shop feel, this should be your go-to song.
