Pessl had told Miller about a film project she had taken on that called for a swing version of a classic harpsichord piece, in the spirit of recent recordings by Raymond Scott and Benny Goodman, and Miller had put her in touch with Wilder. Wilder recalls, “I had found a Couperin piece for harpsichord that suggested jazz rhythms, but before I put an arrangement on paper I asked Miss Pessl for permission to familiarize myself with her harpsichord. She allowed me to visit her apartment, and in the course of experimenting with her German-built instrument I fell in love with the sounds it produced” (Elegant Refuge, 73).
Starting in the mid-1930s, Wilder essentially lost focus on the varieties of concert music that had so impassioned him back in Rochester. Instead he devoted more and more attention to pop songwriting, as he had since parting company with Eddie Brandt around 1930. ”16 His lyrics in these songs are simple and direct and consistent with current songwriting practices. “Just One” is typical: A Just One Under the sun Gives me such devotion Just as deep as the ocean No wonder, I am in love. A Just One Under the sun To my heart keeps bringing Love that makes it keep singing Just One.
