Lush Life: The Music of Billy Strayhorn. Lush Life: The Music of Billy Strayhorn is an album by jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson. Composed of songs written by Billy Strayhorn, the album was a critical and commercial success, leading to the first of three Grammy Awards Henderson would receive while under contract with Verve Records.

Henderson performs ten of Billy Strayhorn's most enduring compositions in a variety of settings ranging from a full quintet with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and duets with pianist Stephen Scott, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson to an unaccompanied solo exploration of "Lush Life. feat: Gregory Hutchinson, Christian McBride.

I used to visit all the very gay places Those come-what-may places Where one relaxes on the axis Of the wheel of life To get the feel of life From jazz and cocktails. The gals (girls) I knew had sad and sullen gray faces With distingué traces That used to be there You could see where They'd been washed away By too many through the day Twelve o'clock tales. Then you came along With your siren song To tempt me to madness I thought for awhile That your poignant smile Was tinged with the sadness Of a great love for me I guess (Ah, yes,) I was wrong Again, I was wrong

Lush Life" was more of an on-going project for Strayhorn than a song intended for publication. He only played the song for friends or at parties until the Carnegie Hall performance. Ellington played seven shows at the iconic theatre that year and Strayhorn and Davis unveiled "Lush Life" in the final show. Soon after that, vocalists clamored to record it, although not all were able to do it. Over 500 covers of "Lush Life" exist, but Frank Sinatra quit trying after a few attempts to interpret the complexities of the verses in 1958. He said he would give it another.
