Georgia On My Mind was written in 1930 by Hoagy Carmichael (music) and Stuart Gorrell (lyrics). It was first recorded on September 15, 1930, in New York by Hoagy Carmichael and His Orchestra with Bix Beiderbecke on muted cornet and Hoagy Carmichael on vocals. It featured Eddie Lang on guitar. The recording was part of Beiderbecke’s last recording session. There are many fingerstyle arrangements of this tune but Martin’s is perhaps the tour de force of all. Martin’s arrangement is played in the key of E.
