Another largely unsung singer, Joe Lee Wilson was born in Oklahoma, moved to New York in the 60s - where he played with Sonny Rollins and Miles Davis - and ended his days in Brighton. 

Along the way he recorded a handful of albums including Feelin' Good on Candid from which comes this gorgeous version of Hal Hopper and Tom Adair's There's No You.  There's a few cracking versions of this song out there - Frank Sinatra, Shirley Horn - but this is the equal of any.  The beautiful piano playing is Kirk Lightsey's.
