Sunrise Serenade: Old Devil Consequence

My unconscious must have been thinking about the passing of Lena Horne, because this morning's Sunrise Serenade was "Old Devil Consequence" by Lena Horne and Eddie "Rochester" Anderson from the 1943 movie Cabin in the Sky.  This particular performance of the song is not from the film itself, but rather from what appears to be the filming of a radio or recording session performance.
