Composer Bart Howard was born Howard Joseph Gustafson on this day in 1915. One of his most famous compositions was "In Other Words," better known as "Fly Me To The Moon." He wrote it in 1954, and the first commercial release was by Kaye Ballard that year. It was originally written in 3/4 time, but Quincy Jones changed it to 4/4 time when he wrote his arrangement for Frank Sinatra for Frank’s 1964 album It Might As Well Be Spring. Peggy Lee convinced Howard to change the name to "Fly Me To The Moon" in 1963.
