The history of Billy Strayhorn's "Lotus Blossom" is a complicated one. Even the name changed over the years. It was known as "Hominy," "All Roads Lead Back to You," and, in 1947, Johnny Hodges recorded it as "Charlotte Russe," presumably named for the popular dessert of the 1930s and 1940s. It was finally registered as "Lotus Blossom" in 1959. Strayhorn was a pianist in Duke Ellington's band, and it was Ellington who recorded the most popular version of this song. It became the last track of the album and many jazz critics viewed this rendition of "Lotus Blossom" as Ellington's final eulogy to his friend. Fittingly, when Ellington died in 1974, Alec Wyton reworked the song for the organ and he played it at Ellington's funeral at St. John the Divine in New York. More songs from Billy Strayhorn. More songs with flowers in the title.
