One listen to Nat Cole's version of "Stardust", arranged by Gordon Jenkins,is enough to understand why lyric-writer Mitchell Parrish called it his personal favorite version. Parrish was the man who in 1929 added words to composer Hoagy Carmichael's 1927 jazz instrumental and made it more of a romantic ballad.Cole's version is also showcased on the "Sleepless In Seattle" soundtrack.

I just finished reading a good biography of Hoagy Carmichael, Stardust Melody by Richard M. Sudhalter, a noted musician in his own right.
