As often as I find sheet music for this, I was truly surprised there's no solo piano recording of it here. These are great, though. I'd have a hard time picking out a favorite. I might listen to Lydia's first.


Has anyone recorded a complete interpretation of the "Mike Hammer" version of Harlem Nocturne?


I'd like a copy of the " New Mike Hammer " version, with the trumpet melody. If anyone has a link, i'd appreciate it. Cheers. Paul.


I have not heard this tune in decades, but it is always in the back of my mind somewhere. I have loved it since I was a kid. Thanks for hipping me to all these fine versions. I am a singer and was thinking about recording it soon, but I did not know it had lyrics until now. Nice lyrics too, but I might want to give it a shot with my own lyrics.

Again, my thanks to whomever puts this site together.

Hopefully I may download some of these versions and play them on my own radio show "New World Gallery" which airs every Sunday on WBAI 99.5 fm in New York City.

PS - You might want to look into a nice latin version by Herbie Mann, it's on Atlantic records, but I don't have the album, just an old beat-up 45 rpm.

Take care and keep posting great stuff like this,


Ooops! I just saw the Herbie Mann version. Sorry for jumping the gun, there are so many versions to check out.

Yeah, it was nice, but with all due respect to Herbie, the tune just calls for a sax.
