It’s a rite of passage for artists to perform their own arrangement of “My Funny Valentine”—the 1937 Rogers and Hart tune that was originally written for the musical Babes in Arms. Seen here, the ubiquitous Jazz standard is arranged and performed by Canada-via-New York vocalist and pianist Laila Biali, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
