Bert Kaempfert - Yesterday And Today

A piece of the later Bert today, and a pretty groovy one too. This a collection of six Bert originals, and six arrangements of fifties rhythm'n'blues hits hails from 1973 and showcases Bert's mature style. There's a sophistication to the arrangements that is missing from some of his earlier albums, but the trademark trumpets are still swingin' and that clipped bass sound is still in evidence.

BTW thanks to all the folks that have left comments - In particular Douglas from Paris who left a glowing comment (on the very first post) and of course that bon-vivant of the bloggoshere Lounge Tracks who kindly left instructions on how to prepare (and dispose of) a Velvet Martini - and I thought I just made it up...
