Note: In 1954 Harold Arlen worked with Truman Capote on the Broadway show House of Flowers.  The show, starring Pearl Bailey, met with mixed reviews and ran for 165 performances.  Many people, including Arlen, regarded it as having some of Arlen's best and most unusual songs including "Two Ladies in the Shade of a Banana Tree", "A Sleeping Bee" and "I Never Has Seen Snow."  Best recordings – Bill Evans, and one by Art Framer.
