Doris Day - Que Sera Sera


Just to celebrate the successful overcoming of the multudious problems involved with setting up a new computer (three rebuilds to try and get my esoteric studio sound card to work...) I'm putting up a second post for today.

Before Doris Day (who, by the way, was born Doris van Kappelhoff) became a famous actress, she was a swing-band singer, and a pretty good one too.

This album provides a fine sampler of the vocal style and taste of dear Doris. Silky smooth - like a musical version of a midnight martini...

01 - Singing In The Rain
02 - Close Your Eyes
03 - It's Easy To Remember
04 - If I Give My Heart To You
05 - That Old Feeling
06 - Que Sera Sera
07 - Time To Say Goodnight
08 - Moonglow
09 - The Lamp Is Low

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...

01 - Blueberry Hill
02 - Time To Love
03 - Love Me Tender
04 - I Will Never Stop Loving You
05 - Who's Sorry Now
06 - I Remember Loving You
07 - Everybody Loves Somebody
08 - You Turned My World Around
09 - Night Train
10 - Nightcap
11 - Rebel Rouser
12 - Children Of Peace
