Where Is The One


Original Version

Where is the one
Who'll end the search I'm making
Where is the one
Who'll change my dream to waking
Behind some far off secret door
There's my love
There's my life
In store
The journey's long
Much longer than I reckoned
In any throng
I'll know her in a second
Some lucky day
I'm bound to find her
And when I do
I'll find love
The journey's long
Much longer than I reckoned
In any throng
I'll know her in a second
Some lucky day
I'm bound to find her
And when I do
I'll find love

edwin finckelEdwin A. Finckel (born 23 December 1913 - 2001) was a jazz performer and arranger and a composer of songs and classical music. Finckel was well regarded for his ability to improvise music and he went on to arrange others and later compose over 200 of his own melodies. He was appearing professionally as a teenager and he went on to introduce string instruments into his arrangement for big bands. His best known song may be Where is the One which was recorded by Frank Sinatra on his Where Are You? album.

Finckel wrote songs for the 1945 film George White's Scandals The photo illustrated here shows Finckel posing for a magazine picture where he has been chosen as a representative of the musical "Modern School" in 1947. He went into teaching where he led the music department of the private Far Brook School in New Jersey for 39 years. At the school, he gave private lessons, conducted the choir and orchestra, and wrote much of the music that the children sing every morning and at special events.The school also employed his wife, Helen, as a secretary. Edwin retired after his 39 years and his position was taken up by Mr. F. Allen Artz III. Finckel continued to perform Jazz but in his forties he also wrote classical music. His son David is a professional cellist who performed and recorded his father's composition for piano and cello Of Human Kindness with his wife Wu Han.

alec wilderAlec Wilder (born Alexander Lafayette Chew Wilder in Rochester, New York, February 16, 1907; d. Gainesville, Florida, December 24, 1980) was an American composer. He was good friends with Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Tony Bennett and other luminaries of the American popular music canon. Among the popular songs he wrote or co-wrote were "I'll Be Around" (a hit for the Mills Brothers), "While We're Young" (recorded by Peggy Lee and many others), "Blackberry Winter", "Where Do You Go?" (recorded by Sinatra) and "It's So Peaceful in the Country". He also wrote many songs for the cabaret artist Mabel Mercer, including one of her signature pieces, "Did You Ever Cross Over to Sneden's?". Unusually for a composer, Wilder occasionally wrote his own lyrics including for his most famous song 'I'll Be Around'. Other lyricists he worked with included Loonis McGlohon, William Engvick, Johnny Mercer and Fran Landesman.
